Economic Impact of the Solar Jobs Bill

The Solar Jobs Act (ESSB 5939) became law in July 2017, to spur more solar investments across Washington State. New research by Western Washington University’s Center for Economic & Business Research and the Solar Installers of Washington details the economic impact of the law for Washington State. In 2018 the law helped bring in approximately $2.2 billion in funding for the state overall. It is clear that solar means business and is a great investment for the state of Washington. You can reference this downloadable Economic Impact table for more information and this summary of the original 2017 Solar Jobs Bill.
