Passing the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) has kicked America’s clean energy sector into high gear, transforming Ohio into a solar and electric vehicle battery manufacturing powerhouse. Across the state, climate and clean energy investments have already spurred $8.06 billion in investment and created or moved forward 5,407 good-paying clean energy jobs. Since the IRA’s passage, 14 new clean energy projects have been announced or moved forward in Ohio, ranking 8th in the nation. Projects span four sectors, including electric vehicles, batteries, solar, and other clean technologies. In Ohio’s rural communities, companies have announced $700 million in investment and the creation of 300 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.
