GE Ecomagination TheGreenJobBank today released its second report on the green jobs created by the 10 winners of GE's Ecomagination Home Challenge. TheGreenJobBank is pleased to again report a positive trend, with 54 new green jobs posted on the companies websites in August (31 jobs) and September (23 jobs).

Of the 10 companies, Hara Software, SunRun, Project Frog, GMZ Energy, Ember Corporation, and Witricity added job postings; On-Ramp Wireless, Nuventix, Viridity Energy, and VPhase had no new postings. These new jobs were all indexed by TheGreenJobBank from the companies' websites and are available on the search engine's website.

"This is a very positive report" said Bernard Ferret, founder and CEO of TheGreenJobBank. "31 new open positions in August, and 23 in September represent a 50% increase from July. We hope that these companies continue to do well and create more green jobs."

This brings the total green jobs created to 141 since GE announced the 10 winners in June 2011. Green Job creation is a critical element of the solution to lift our economy out of the current recession, and TheGreenJobBank is committed to expand its reporting.
