ACORE Statement on Rep. Casten and Rep. Levin’s Introduction of the CETA Act

Statement From Jose Zayas, Executive Vice President of Policy and Programs at the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE):

“A significant buildout of the nation’s transmission system is imperative to achieving a clean energy grid that will provide emissions reductions, reliability and resilience improvements, and cost savings.

“ACORE strongly supports the Clean Electricity and Transmission Acceleration (CETA) Act for its comprehensive approach to tackling the myriad of barriers to building a 21st century Macro Grid. The CETA Act offers much-needed solutions to enhance interregional transmission planning, facilitate cost allocation, streamline transmission permitting, establish a minimum transfer requirement, reform participant funding, and provide a standalone transmission investment tax credit.

“We applaud Representatives Casten and Levin for their leadership and look forward to working with members of Congress to advance this important and comprehensive legislation.”
