Passing the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) has kicked America’s clean energy sector into high gear, transforming Georgia into a solar and electric vehicle battery manufacturing powerhouse. Across the state, new clean energy projects have already spurred $21.9 billion in investment, the 2nd highest in the nation, and created or moved forward over 19,100 good-paying clean energy jobs, the 4th most in the country. Since the IRA’s passage, 29 new clean energy projects have been announced or moved forward in Georgia, ranking 2nd in the nation, with projects spanning four sectors – solar, batteries, electric vehicles, and other clean technologies. In Georgia’s rural communities, companies have announced $1.46 billion in investment and the creation of 2,414 good-paying clean energy jobs. The IRA will continue to accelerate the clean energy jobs boom while lowering energy costs for families, investing in disadvantaged communities, and reducing climate pollution across the state.
