House Markups Continue Momentum for Transformative Clean Energy Policy
Statement from BCSE President Lisa Jacobson
“Yesterday, the House Ways and Means Committee and the House Committee on Energy and Commerce advanced key measures for America’s clean energy future. Among the important actions are extensions of clean energy and energy efficiency tax credits into the 2030s. This means projects with longer development cycles will be able to move forward with more certainty. The bill also expands eligible technologies in a number of important areas and provides “direct pay,” easing the ability to utilize the credits.
“The tax policies are complemented by many clean energy and energy efficiency related provisions coming out of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce’s mark-up. Clean energy and energy efficiency policies provide strong benefits to homeowners, consumers and businesses, encouraging them to invest in best-in-class technologies and can help create millions of good paying U.S. jobs.
“The actions in the House this week mark important steps to support an equitable, reliable and sustainable energy transition. BCSE looks forward to sharing its feedback on the legislation and working with Congress and the Biden Administration as they continue to develop the reconciliation legislation.”
