The infrastructure package contains key clean energy provisions, including pro-solar actions, according to the SEIA.

The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the Moving Forward Act, an infrastructure package containing key clean energy provisions. According to a press release from the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the package includes pro-solar provisions. 

Abigail Ross Hopper, president and CEO of SEIA, said the release: “There is more work to be done to get a bipartisan package to the president’s desk. However, it’s important that we prioritize investments in industries like solar that can add billions of dollars to the economy and put tens of thousands of Americans back to work. In doing so, we must ensure that our economic growth is equitable growth, and we’re glad to see the amendment from Congressman Bobby Rush that establishes critical workforce development programs to ensure job opportunities are abundant in communities that have been left behind.

“We have built strong bipartisan support in Congress and will continue pushing for policies that allow the solar industry to help lead America’s economic recovery.”
