Since the Inlation Reduction Act (IRA)’s landmark climate and clean energy investments became law in August 2022, companies have been racing forward with massive investments to build our clean energy future. New manufacturing in wind, solar, batteries, electric vehicles (EVs), and storage projects across the country mean new, good-paying jobs for hard-working Americans. In just under a year, companies have announced or moved forward with projects accounting for more than 211,350 new clean energy jobs for electricians, mechanics, construction workers, technicians, support staf, and many others.
As the largest U.S. investment in climate and clean energy in history, President Joe Biden’s Clean Energy Plan will continue to reshape and recharge our economy for decades to come. The Made in America clean energy boom is just getting started.
This report analyzes public announcements from the private sector since the passage of the IRA to demonstrate the breadth and scale of the growing clean energy economy being built all across the country. It also provides a breakdown of the data by state, sector, and congressional district, as well as two breakout analyses covering projects, jobs, and investments in rural areas across America and in districts represented by Republican members of the House of Representatives.
