“The 2015 Vermont Clean Energy Industry Report results show, again, that investment in local energy and local jobs is a win-win for Vermont. From efficiency to biomass to solar businesses, we are seeing not only more jobs in Vermont in this sector but also an economic ripple into other sectors with nearly 60% of clean energy businesses relying on Vermont suppliers for more than half of their vendor needs. This creates a robust network of economic development that keeps all of our dollars circulating locally.
