ACORE in the News

“The time has come for the U.S. to move beyond climate denial and resume a global leadership role in the fight against climate change. An accelerated transition to renewable power provides both climate protection and economic prosperity. With more than $60 billion in annual investment, and two of the nation’s fastest-growing job categories — wind turbine technician and solar power installer — renewable energy can help power America’s economic recovery, as it did in 2009.”
– Gregory Wetstone in POWER Magazine on President-elect Biden
