The Pew Charitable Trusts said this week that what it counted 7,800

clean energy jobs in Alabama in 2007, and said the sector grew 2.2 percent from 1998 to 2007, outpacing overall job growth of 1.6 percent.

Pew found 3,200 clean energy jobs in Mississippi, and said the sector had grown 24.8 percent in the last 10 years, compared to a 3.6 percent rate for all jobs in the state.

The study found that such jobs grew at a 9.1 percent nationwide during the same period, compared to a 3.7 percent overall job growth.

The study said it counted clean energy workers from engineers to plumbers to teachers. Pay for those jobs ranged from $21,000 to $110,000 nationwide.
