The Environmental Law and Policy Center, an environmental legal advocacy and eco-business organization, has released a new study of Ohio’s wind and solar energy supply chain. The study found that 106 Ohio companies are doing business with the wind power industry and 63 Ohio companies are part of the solar energy supply chain.
Ohio’s strong manufacturing base and skilled workforce, together with supportive policies and smart investments, have helped make Ohio a center for clean energy manufacturing, according to the report.
Wind industry suppliers employ over 7,500 people in Ohio, and according to the Ohio Department of Development, solar manufacturing has created over 1,500 jobs statewide.
