Montana Clean Energy Jobs


Synapse estimated the economic impacts of investment in wind, solar PV, and energy efficiency in Montana. The project team used the IMPLAN model to determine direct, indirect, and induced impacts in terms of jobs per million dollars of spending on construction and O&M for each resource. These results were then translated to jobs per average megawatt of energy produced over the next 20 years to allow for an apples-to-apples comparison across resources.

Project completed July 2014.
