ACORE Statement on President Biden’s State of the Union Address

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

“I am encouraged by President Biden’s renewed push for historic investments in clean energy, including tax incentives to accelerate the deployment of solar and wind power, during tonight’s State of the Union address. The President’s energy proposals will save American families an average of $500 a year, offering an important reminder that addressing the climate crisis is both good for our planet and good for our economy. Working with congressional leaders, President Biden also proposed transformational investments in domestic manufacturing to strengthen and onshore our clean energy supply chain. ACORE and its members stand ready to work with the Biden Administration and Congressional leaders to realize the bold vision for a renewable energy future outlined in tonight’s address.”
