    CLEAN JOBS WASHINGTON 2018

    When it comes to clean energy jobs, the Evergreen State is beginning to live up to its nickname according to Clean Jobs Washington 2018. More than 82,800 Washingtonians now work in clean energy—wind, solar, energy efficiency and related industries. That makes the clean energy industry a bigger employer in the state than Boeing (around 65,800 employees), Microsoft (46,000) or Amazon (50,000).
