24 Days ‘til Default: Nearly 150,000 Clean Energy Jobs are at Risk if MAGA House Republicans’ Default on America Act Passes
Washington, D.C. — It’s official. MAGA House Republicans are willing to crash our economy to kill our clean energy boon—an economic goldmine that primarily helps their own communities. As we approach June 1st, when the Treasury has said the U.S. will default, Climate Power is counting down each day, highlighting what’s at risk if MAGA extremists repeal the clean energy incentives found in the Inflation Reduction Act.
Coast to coast, we’re seeing our clean energy economy supercharge—encouraging clean energy business growth and massive job creation. According to Climate Power’s latest Clean Energy Boom report, more than 142,000 new clean energy jobs have been announced since the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act. Thus far, the 191 clean energy projects total nearly $250 billion in new investments. Any cuts to the clean energy incentives found in the Inflation Reduction Act risk massive job loss in communities across the country.
