While editing an in-depth article on Arizona solar energy this week, this line caught my attention: "With over 375 solar companies serving the value chain in Arizona, there are more than 6,900 people employed in the state’s solar market." 6,900 jobs in a state like Arizona is a big deal, and the solar industry is just getting started!
