Tennessee goes for green-energy jobs
"(Green) will be a growth industry, especially with the Obama stimulus package."
- Bill Fox, researcher/economist
Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - Tennessee is working hard to position itself to take advantage of a revolution in manufacturing that could bring thousands of new, high-paying "green energy" jobs in such fields as biofuels, solar and wind energy.
Industries that focus on alternative energy are expanding, despite the recession, and would significantly step up their efforts if the new Obama administration pushes through a proposed economic-stimulus program that would provide billions of dollars to create green jobs.
