Solar Smackdown: Oregon vs North Carolina – Infographic

Originally published on 1Sun4All.

Our friends over at renewableenergysolar.net have created another exciting solar infographic. This time it’s a solar showdown between Oregon and North Carolina. Enjoy the Solar Smackdown and some solar industry information about Oregon and North Carolina from the Solar Energy Industries Association.

Solar Jobs Matchup – Oregon vs. North Carolina

West Coast vs East Coast. Northwest vs Southeast. We’re talking about Oregon vs North Carolina. Created by virtue of a recent request, we take a look at how the Beaver State compares to the Tar Heel State in solar rankings. Jumping on the West Coast solar bandwagon, led by California, Oregon has a nice little solar structure in place. With almost 3000 employed solar workers throughout the state, spread out over 116 companies, Oregon’s solar jobs per capita ranks as the 6th highest in the United States, enough to crown them solar champion!
