ACORE Statement on Senator Heinrich’s Electric Power Infrastructure Improvement Act

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

“Senator Heinrich’s Electric Power Infrastructure Improvement Act incentivizes high-priority transmission expansion, which will unlock tens of thousands of megawatts of wind and solar now stuck in interconnection queues. A transmission investment tax credit will enhance reliability, create jobs, save consumers money, and provide developers with the long-term certainty they need to invest in building a U.S. Macro Grid capable of delivering the clean energy future Americans want and deserve. We look forward to working with Senator Heinrich and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to pass this critically important legislation this year.”
