MiBiz covered COVID-19's effect on Michigan's clean energy jobs and companies attempt noting AEE's policy recommendation. Read excerpts below and the entire MiBiz piece here.
The coronavirus has wiped out recent statewide clean energy job gains as Michigan companies take a patchwork approach to continuing work during the pandemic. According to a study released by business and environmental groups this month, the U.S. lost 106,000 clean energy jobs since the outbreak started in March, including 5,446 in Michigan, or 4.1 percent of the state’s clean energy job sector. The report estimates national clean energy job losses could top 500,000, or 15 percent, as new unemployment data become available for the month of April.
