However, a more exhaustive survey of “clean energy workers” in Massachusetts conducted for MassCEC in mid-2013 found a total of 8,400 solar workers in the Commonwealth. That study included a broader sampling of both manufacturing, R&D and other services than did the TSF Census. A comparison of the two data sets suggests that, if the TSF Census had used the broader sampling in Massachusetts, it would have found 8,600 solar workers in the commonwealth, consistent with the earlier study.
