Posted: Updated:
(FOX 47) -

Minnesota is leading the way in clean energy jobs. 

According to a report from Clean Energy Trust, more than 59,000 Minnesotans work in clean energy industries. 

Jobs in clean energy grew at a rate of 2.6 percent over the last year. 

That's twice as fast as all jobs in the state. 

Minnesota stands out in the Midwest, as the report says clean energy jobs in the entire region decreased by 1.2 percent. 

However, more clean energy companies in Minnesota are finding it difficult to hire qualified employees.
