Since the landmark Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) became law in August 2022, companies are racing forward with massive investments to build our clean energy future. New manufacturing in wind, solar, batteries, and electric vehicles — along with storage projects across the country — means new, good-paying jobs for hard-working Americans. In just a year, since the landmark climate and clean energy investments became law, clean energy companies have announced or moved forward with 272 projects accounting for more than 170,600 new clean energy jobs for electricians, mechanics, construction workers, technicians, support staff, and many others. A large majority, 201, of these projects are located in areas with communities with populations of people of color above the national average, bringing more than 111,700 new jobs to communities of color across the United States — from Arizona to Rhode Island. As the largest U.S. investment in clean energy and climate in history, the Biden administration’s clean energy plan will continue to reshape and recharge our economy for many decades to come.
