ACORE Statement on Senate Passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

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

“The bipartisan infrastructure deal is a constructive first step in this year’s infrastructure process and contains several provisions to help build the transmission necessary to decarbonize the grid. Accelerating the transition to a renewable energy economy will create good-paying American jobs, lower costs for consumers and help us avoid the worst impacts of climate change. As today’s legislation moves to the House, and Congress turns its collective attention to budget reconciliation, we look forward to working with lawmakers in both chambers to advance the critical policies that will deliver the clean energy future Americans want and deserve.”
