*The Department of Energy defines Renewable Energy under 42 U.S.C. § 15852(b) as electric energy generated from solar, wind, biomass, landfill gas, ocean, geothermal, municipal solid waste, or new hydroelectric generation.

**This figure reflects the total number of paid employees at employer establishments classified in the Solar Electric Power Generation (NAICS 221114) industry, regardless of employee occupations which vary across industries.

***This U.S. industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in operating electric power generation facilities (except hydroelectric, fossil fuel, nuclear, solar, wind, geothermal, biomass). These facilities convert other forms of energy, such as tidal power, into electric energy, which is then provided to electric power transmission systems or to electric power distribution systems.
