According to a study by David Roland-Hoist, a researcher at the University of California at Berkley, the implementation of AB 32 could result in over 400,000 new jobs for the state. The net job increase by 2020, would also result in a contribution of $76 billion to the gross state product. A state study said that the implementation of AB 32 would only see about 60,000 jobs created, however Roland-Hoist says the state study didn’t factor in gains in energy efficiency due to the required innovations, which would, in turn, result in the creation of additional jobs. The report says, “While job growth continues to be positive in the carbon fuel supply chain, it is less than it would be without implementation of these policies.”
