Re: President Biden’s Clean Energy Plan is at the Heart of Bidenomics

Since taking office, President Biden has delivered on his promise of bold climate action, and to bring good paying manufacturing jobs back to the U.S. Today, his clean energy plan is a key component of “Bidenomics” — bringing manufacturing back to the U.S. and creating more good paying jobs that will grow the middle class. 

Big cities and small towns in red states and blue states and everywhere in between are already seeing the results of President Biden’s clean energy plan. 

The Inflation Reduction Act, Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and the CHIPS and Science Act have helped turbocharge the clean energy economy and are fueling a new manufacturing boom at a near unprecedented speed. Already, businesses have announced 191 new clean energy projects in small towns and bigger cities nationwide totaling $242.81 billion in new investments—creating 142,016 new jobs. 

These climate and clean energy wins for the American people are a tangible, specific example of what Bidenomics means. They’ll be a centerpiece of President Biden’s campaign in 2024. 

The Immediate Economic Impact of President Biden’s Clean Energy Plan: 

President Biden’s clean energy plan has already helped create more than 142,000 good paying jobs in less than a year, providing opportunities for electricians, mechanics, construction workers, technicians, support staff, and many others. And that’s only the beginning. In the months since the landmark climate and clean energy investments in the Inflation Reduction Act became law, clean energy companies have invested $242.81 billion in 191 clean energy projects across 41 states.  

More than half of clean energy projects that have been announced or moved forward since the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act are located in districts represented by congressional Republicans, who are dead set on killing our clean energy economic boom. Republican presidential candidates, including Donald Trump, have promised to repeal the clean energy plan on the campaign trail. The contrast and what’s at stake in 2024 couldn’t be clearer. 

President Biden’s Clean Energy Plan is Popular

President Biden’s emphasis on investing in clean energy is popular – voters know his agenda is a job creator, will reduce their energy costs, and is unleashing a manufacturing boom, making Republicans’ vow to repeal clean energy investments a political loser


President Biden’s clean energy plan has brought over 142,000 good paying jobs (and counting) back to American workers, and families are seeing the benefits already. President Biden made good on his campaign promises to meet the climate moment with clean energy investments, and he’ll make sure to tell that story on the 2024 campaign trail.
