It seems that as for every day that passes more and more jobs in USA gets outsourced and shipped overseas to countries with cheaper labour. That's why it must be great news for the people of Colorado in USA that Vestas, the world's leading supplier of wind energy, has announced that they will "outsource" 1350 new green tech jobs to Colorado.
Besides one factory already being built in Colorado at a total cost of $200 the Danish company Vestas will invest $120 million in a new blade factory and a nacelle assembly factory in Brighton. Thanks to these investments a total of 2450 people will be on Vestas payroll in Colorado.
The green tech jobs currently being created in Colorado mainly come from the state's "growing political and economic commitment to renewables", as the Washington Post reports:
An 87.5 percent property tax exemption? Yes, you read right. No wonder big oil likes status quo and does everything it can to halt any kind of transformation to a more sustainable energy market.
