Dr. Harris discussed how the Inflation Reduction Act delivers strong investments in clean energy that will support and create high-quality, union jobs, particularly in hard-hit communities, while helping reach our climate goals.
She concluded by saying, “Since the Inflation Reduction Act passed, companies have announced over $242 billion in clean energy investments in 41 states where companies have committed to creating more than 140,000 jobs. Many of these jobs will be in communities that have endured decades of divestment, deindustrialization, and economic insecurity.”
“As the United States ramps up efforts to grow the clean economy, the Inflation Reduction Act gives us the opportunity to lead globally, rebuild good, union jobs in communities across the nation, and bolster innovation and production of the clean technology of the future here at home.”
