    for solar jobs

    MONTPELIER — The Solar Foundation says Vermont is ranked first for solar jobs per capita.

    There are approximately 1,300 solar jobs total in installation, manufacturing and project development.

    Gov. Peter Shumlin said in a news release that the ranking is “a testament to the success” of Vermont’s renewable energy business, utilities and state policies.

    According to the Solar Foundation’s website, Vermont added about 990 solar jobs from 2012 to 2013. Vermont previously ranked at 11th in solar jobs per capita.

    The foundation said that New England represents nearly 20 percent of total U.S. solar workforce.

    The foundation is a nonprofit focused on energy topics based in D.C.
