100 Gigawatts of Domestic Manufacturing Capacity by 2030

Photo Courtesy of PV Evolution Labs You probably heard the arguments why U.S. solar manufacturing can’t compete. Our labor costs are too high. It’s all automated so there aren’t that many jobs anyways. And it’s too late, we can’t catch-up with other countries. But what about the fact that there are already tens of thousands of Americans employed in renewable energy manufacturing; that manufacturing has the highest jobs multiplier of any industry; or that the U.S. has some of the best research laboratories in the world?
