BCSE Statement on Senate Introduction of Clean Energy for America Act
Statement from Lisa Jacobson, BCSE President
“The Business Council for Sustainable Energy is pleased to see Senator Wyden, with 24 cosponsors, once again take the lead on clean energy tax policy through the introduction today of the Clean Energy for America Act. The broad scope of eligible technologies makes this legislation especially effective in supporting a diverse and reliable American clean energy industry. We applaud Senator Wyden for recognizing that clean energy is key to our future prosperity and our nation’s economic recovery.
“Incentives for deployment of many clean energy technologies and infrastructure investments along with tax measures to promote workforce development and domestic manufacturing can help ensure American technology leadership, revitalize our manufacturing centers and create good jobs across the country.
“The BCSE looks forward to reviewing Senator Wyden’s legislation and working with him to ensure long-term stable tax policy will be utilized to meet these objectives and to help the nation build back better. As I wrote in an April 15 op-ed in The Hill, we see the highest impact when tax policy is in sync with industry’s investment and project development cycles. Long-term and durable credits lead to steady growth.”
