DULUTH, MN — New numbers show nearly two-thousand people in the Duluth-Superior area have jobs in the clean energy industry.
In fact, that job field grew two and a half times faster than Minnesota’s overall job growth last year.
It’s thanks in part to efforts by companies like Duluth based LHB. They’re an engineering design firm aimed at helping organizations become more sustainable.
They recently helped with some big projects at the 148th Fighter Wing, some of which have helped reduce the base’s carbon footprint.
“There’s the idea of people taking a little pride in improving the environment and trying to be sustainable to the environment.” Kevin Holm, part of LHB stated.
Those with the 148th say not only do some of these projects like building a new training facility improve their sustainability, but also their military readiness and our training.
