The promise of green jobs

But the state’s budget deficits will most likely prevent the state from even expanding successful programs like the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund, said David Downie, director of the Environment Program at Fairfield University… Downie said there are enough people thinking green in Fairfield County these days to support a growing industry. As the economy recovers, he said they have the “means and the interest to make their homes more energy efficient, to consider a solar hot water heater, eat more organic produce, or shop at stores specializing in green products.” Whether their interests will be strong enough to drive sustained green job growth will be a function of culture and the economy, he said.
