As reported by Morgan Chilson for The Topeka Capital-Journal.

“Kansas has more than 27,000 jobs in the clean energy sector with a projected growth of 2.3 percent employment over the next 12 months, but the state is lagging behind others in the region.

A “Clean Jobs Midwest” report released Tuesday highlighted the clean energy employment sector in 12 Midwestern states. Overall, the region reported almost 569,000 jobs, with projected employment growth of 4.4 percent.

Solar Power Rocks, a business that promotes solar power usage, ranks each state for its solar energy policies and costs. It gives Kansas a “D” on its 2016 policies.”
