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.
