ACORE Statement on House Energy & Commerce Committee Action to Advance Clean Energy and Transmission Priorities in the Build Back Better Act 

Statement From Gregory Wetstone, President and CEO of the American Council on Renewable Energy

“We commend the Energy and Commerce Committee for advancing its important clean energy and transmission contributions to the Build Back Better Act. Along with a stable, predictable and long-term clean energy tax platform, the Clean Electricity Performance Program can help decarbonize the grid by 80% over the next decade. Additionally, the transmission investments in the Energy and Commerce mark will grow our economy and provide meaningful support for the transmission buildout we’re going to need for America’s clean energy transition.”
