“Democrats Call For Green Energy Relief In Next Stimulus Package”

“Nearly 60 Democrats are calling on leaders to include help for the renewable energy industry in the next stimulus package.

“As Congress works to help the American economy recover, we must ensure robust investments are made to spur growth in renewable energy, energy storage, energy efficiency, clean vehicles, clean and efficient infrastructure, clean fuels, and workforce development,” lawmakers wrote in a letter spearheaded by Rep. Paul Tonko (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.).

“These investments should both spur national growth and include funding opportunities for community-level adoption. Smart investments in these areas can help America decarbonize, put people back to work, and help our national, state, and local economies recover,” they wrote.”
