California: Jobs in Building Electrification June 15 2020, 0 Comments

A recent UCLA study by the Luskin Center for Innovation found that electrifying all of California's existing and new buildings by 2045 would create over 100,000 full-time equivalent jobs in various sectors of the economy. That 100,000 represents a net increase in jobs, even after accounting for losses in the fossil fuel industry. The research also shows that three out of every five of these new jobs will be in sectors that require and appropriately compensate a skilled and trained workforce.
