CEBN and its supporters are urging Congress 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.”
