Updated: October 6, 2021 | Andy Barnes, Director of Policy and Communications, CEBN
This week, the CEBN delivered a letter to the Senate signed by 550 clean energy business leaders applauding passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill and calling for further action on clean energy. This updated letter, which follows a letter CEBN recently delivered to the House, has attracted support from clean energy business leaders representing over 400 firms headquartered across 46 states and DC. This campaign has demonstrated strong backing from clean energy business leaders across the country and received coverage in Politico’s Morning Energy.
Clean Energy Business Leaders
Spearheaded by the CEBN and with support from its parent organization, the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE), this campaign has garnered support from cleantech CEOs, supply chain providers, entrepreneurs, and partners from across the clean energy economy.
CEBN and its supporters are urging Congress to pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill and to leverage the budget package to extend and expand clean energy tax credits, make these fully refundable, double down on RD&D, and direct additional resources towards advanced energy and transportation solutions.
The letter states, “Supporting the clean energy industry would create both immediate AND long-term benefits by generating well-paid manufacturing and construction jobs in every part of the country while creating a stronger, healthier, and more resilient future for our nation.”
Join over 550 clean energy business leaders and sign onto this letter urging Congress to pass the bipartisan infrastructure package and take additional steps to support clean energy.
