Energy efficiency will create jobs ... lots of them

EEB Hub is bringing jobs back to Philadelphia

I thought this article was interesting.

I wrote a post last year about the EEB Hub (which was first referred to as the Greater Philadelphia Innovation Cluster, or GPIC) and its potential impact on the local economy. It looks like the government's investment in Philadelphia is already starting to pay off (with some basic numbers).

Energy efficiency in Philadelphia would mean:

  • $618M in Local Spending
  • 23,500 New, Local Jobs
  • Commercial (and Residential) Growth at the Navy Yard
  • Companies Manufacturing in Philadelphia ... Again

Read on to learn more about what the significance of the EEB Hub really is for our city.
