Renewable Energy

The Triangle is home to the largest concentration of renewable energy and energy efficiency companies in the state, with solar being the preferred technology for renewable generation. A major contributor to the industry’s growth is the North Carolina Solar Center.  Founded in 1988, the North Carolina Solar Center serves as a clearinghouse for renewable energy programs, and provides technical assistance and training for the companies and citizens of North Carolina. Looking ahead, as smart grid technologies become more widespread, renewable energy firms will enjoy tremendous growth and will demand highly skilled workers to help them grow.
