Solar jobs growth has outperformed the overall economy by a factor of 20 times. And more and more solar jobs were created as prices fell. Significantly more. This is in direct contrast to oil and gas where when prices fall, men and women end up out of work. And herein lies the crux: we can only create new jobs in oil and gas if we also create higher prices in the overall economy. High energy costs spill over into virtually everything else because energy is our economic bedrock. It is an interesting dichotomy. Oil and gas creates jobs only if prices and inflation rise whereas solar jobs are created if prices and inflation fall.
