Jobs and Clean Energy – Danny Kennedy


The great energy transition is underway. Renewable electricity build-out is outpacing dirty projects.

In this excerpt from his 2016 keynote address, Kennedy highlights the overwhelming employment and economic opportunity that solar energy development is providing right now and moving forward.
