Electricity use in the Mid-Atlantic region is projected to grow by almost 20 percent from 2004-2014; new generation capacity will be necessary to meet additional demands and to replace older power plants as they go offline. Renewables Work: Job Growth from Renewable Energy Development in the Mid-Atlantic outlines how the region can develop a strong renewable energy industry and position itself as a major supplier to growing clean energy markets. It also demonstrates that the development of wind and solar power would be a powerful engine for economic growth, creating tens of thousands of high paying jobs in Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
