After decades of inaction punctuated by occasional half-measures, Congress has passed monumental legislation committing the nation to pursuing a clean energy transformation that will benefit all sectors of American society.

The enactment of the Inflation Reduction Act, which cleared the House of Representatives today, will signal to the rest of the world that the United States is “all in” on decarbonizing the domestic economy while greatly expanding investment and career opportunities in the clean energy arena.

Specifically, this legislation represents a 10-year commitment aimed at scaling up the deployment of clean energy technologies, electric vehicles, and electrified heating and cooling systems produced and delivered by U.S. companies.

With its emphasis on strengthening America’s productive capacity and workforce to deliver clean energy to our fellow citizens, this legislation is truly an industrial-strength response to the climate emergency that is enveloping our planet.

We at RENEW look forward to working collaboratively with federal and state agencies, businesses, farmers, local governments, and schools to help deliver the benefits of the clean energy transformation to every Wisconsinite.
