ACORE Statement on the Solar Energy Manufacturing for America Act

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

“We applaud Senator Ossoff for introducing the Solar Energy Manufacturing for America Act, which would go a long way toward catalyzing a 21st century domestic supply chain for solar technology in the United States. There has never been a greater demand for cost-effective, zero-carbon solar power, and we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to invest in our domestic manufacturing capabilities to create tens of thousands of good-paying clean energy jobs. We look forward to partnering with Senator Ossoff and other clean energy champions in Congress to ensure that the United States remains competitive in the global solar market.”
