The last administration started a huge push towards a green future for our country. The Trump administration greenlit the biggest US solar power project in 2020. The Biden administration has continued to push for this and made it clear that they would like to be carbon neutral by 2050. They have continued to support the clean energy efforts by creating more clean energy plans. The administration just released new projects and plans to support the clean energy movement occurring in the US.
Their recent actions include The Department of Energy launching a new “Building a Better Grid” initiative. This will accelerate the deployment of new transmission lines to connect more Americans to cleaner, cheaper energy. This transmission buildout will make the U.S. grid more reliable and resilient in the face of extreme weather. This has been a critical role to achieving the President’s goal of 100% carbon pollution-free electricity by 2035.
The Department of Agriculture is creating a new pilot program to ensure these benefits reach all Americans. This will help support clean energy in underserved rural communities. The Department of Commerce is giving American Recue Plan funds to help regional coalitions form new industry clusters. This will continue to help with energy deployment and job training.
The newest National Renewable Laboratory report shows that the SolarAPP+ tool is helping to reduce permitting times for residential installations. This new tool, made by the administration, is helping local governments fast-track rooftop solar. The administration is using every tool available to deploy clean energy at a record pace.
The current administration is still pushing forward on passing the Build Back Better Act. This is a historic act, as it’s the nations largest investment in combatting climate change. Its goals are to lower energy costs for working families and build a clean energy future. The Build Back Better Act supports wind turbines, solar panels, and other clean technology. In order to help these growing industries, the government is investing in workforce development programs. The best part of the act is that the act provides a historic set of clean energy tax credits that are more accessible. With these investments, the U.S. will lead the world on innovative climate solutions and save the average American family hundreds of dollars each year in energy costs.
