ACORE in the News

“The hard-hitting impacts of COVID-19 continue to roil the renewable energy workforce. To keep that unemployment number from rising further, our ask to Congress is simple and urgent: We need temporary refundability for renewable tax credits so that projects can continue to be built in spite of a COVID-constrained tax equity market, and a delay in the scheduled phasedown of existing credits in recognition of the adverse nationwide impact the pandemic has had on the renewable sector this year,”
– Gregory Wetstone in The Hill on clean energy unemployment due to COVID-19
