California green investments are producing jobs - clean energy is the fastest growing job sector -- OVER ALL.

Find green business solutions
AB32 is under attack by petroleum interests OUTSIDE the state of California. It's important for Californians to do a bit of research to see how the investments we have made in green innovation, pollution reduction and green career development are shaping our economy. It's been a tough, pioneering initiative -- much like settling the West -- but we're seeing the results. For example, clean energy has the fastest growing job rate. In ALL sectors.

"The green economy that AB32 helped spawn is taking hold. California already boasts five of the nation's top 10 cities for cleantech investment. In 2008, this investment reached record levels, almost doubling over the previous year, to $3.3 billion. All across our region, innovators and investors are pouring resources into solar power, biofuels, electric and plug-in hybrid cars, fuel cells, energy-efficient computing and lighting, and sustainable building practices and materials."

(Opinion, Kenneth Wilcox, president and CEO of SVB Financial Group and a board member of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, San Jose Mercury News, 2/9/2010)

Southern California Edison (SCE) Awards 36 Solar Contracts and Creates 1,200 Clean Tech Jobs

These solar contracts went to 36 independent power producers who will install solar panels on 31 rooftops and 5 ground-mounted sites. Eventually, the SCE solar rooftop project will produce 500 megawatts of clean solar power on as many as 250 rooftops. The resulting electricity will be enough to power 325,000 homes and employ up to 1,200 Californians.

Thompson says the county did not have to invest any upfront funds and the project will be “cash flow positive” from the first day of operation. SunPower Corp. managing director Bill Kelly says the project is helping Yolo County save money, create jobs and produce clean energy. is sponsored by the California Business Alliance for a Green Economy which supports the implementation of California’s clean energy policies, including AB 32, by the California Air Resources Board and other public agencies.
