Utah Clean Energy on Senate passage of the Inflation Reduction Act

“The Inflation Reduction Act would make vital and historic investments in America’s future. The jobs this legislation will create alone is enough to get excited about, but the impact it will have in addressing the impacts of climate change is unprecedented. The U.S. Senate’s vote today to advance this legislation is a critical first step in safeguarding our future.”

“The Inflation Reduction Act would make a historic investment in clean energy and reducing emissions. Major independent analysis has found that Senate’s Inflation Reduction Act would reduce America’s greenhouse gas emissions by 40% by 2030, while also boosting energy security and helping to shield American consumers from volatile energy prices. Utah’s growing clean energy and energy efficiency businesses are in great position to use these important investments to create jobs and new projects in communities throughout our state.” 

“This legislation also helps to advance domestic manufacturing of components for electric vehicles, solar panels, energy storage technologies. Clean energy is one of many areas of domestic manufacturing our leaders should be prioritizing to ensure that America can compete during the global energy transition.”
