“Senators Manchin and Schumer’s Inflation Reduction Act can bring us out of the dinosaur age into the cleantech era with energy provisions to lower energy bills, create jobs, fight inflation and build a manufacturing base for the clean energy future right here in the U.S. This package can catapult renewable energy production, guarantee tens of thousands of jobs and encourage massive investment in proven technologies that reduce electricity costs and fight climate change. It’s now in Congress’ hands to do the right thing.”
