New Careers and Fresh Starts

Career changers power the future.

We cannot reach our climate goals without New Yorkers like you to transform these goals into action.

Our actions and investments are creating new economic activity right here in New York. The clean energy industry is growing before our eyes and the number of clean energy jobs in New York State reached an all-time statewide record of 171,000 workers through the end of 2022. This recent growth is part of a larger trend in the State, with clean energy employment growing 21 percent since 2015 and continued growth on the horizon.

Careers in the green economy are not just for trained engineers and contractors.
