A report card issued by an advocacy group says solar jobs in Kentucky are still relatively few, but are growing. The assessment by The Solar Foundation found that there were 1,202 jobs last year in the solar industry in Kentucky, which represents a 20 percent growth from 2015.

Proposed legislation regarding solar energy was passed over during a legislative meeting Tuesday. The bill concerned with net metering was scheduled to be heard in the Senate Natural Resources and Energy Committee.
