Evergreen Applauds Introduction of The American Renewable Energy Act of 2021

In response to the introduction of The American Renewable Energy Act of 2021, led by Representative Peter Welch (D-VT) and Representative Yvette Clarke (D-NY), Evergreen Action Executive Director Jamal Raad released the following statement:

“To create millions of new jobs across the country, meet our climate goals, and launch an equitable clean energy economic recovery, we know we must transition our economy to be powered by 100% clean energy. The American Renewable Energy Act of 2021 is an important addition to that effort. This is an all-hands-on-deck moment and we are lucky to have powerful advocates in Representatives Welch and Clarke fighting for climate, jobs, and justice on the House Energy & Commerce Committee. We look forward to their continued leadership as we work together to pass a bold infrastructure package that includes the strongest possible standards for our power sector and sets us on the course to a just and thriving clean energy future.”
