"Orange County Is Growing Green Jobs"

"In the sleek Irvine office building of FirstCarbon Solutions, engineers, biologists, and mapping software specialists work in green jobs. They calculate the impact of housing tracts, design wetlands, and measure air pollution as part of the fast-growing environmental consulting industry."

"On the 18-acre industrial site of Rainbow Environmental Services in Huntington Beach, the green jobs belong to assembly-line workers who pull out non-recyclable junk from a conveyor belt and bulldozer drivers who push mountains of trash into sorting machines.

At Garden Grove’s Progressive Power Group, sales people and installers scramble for business in a highly competitive green job market: promoting the use of solar energy for homes and companies."
