LWVUS Supports 100% Clean Energy by 2035

On April 26th, the League of Women Voters of the United States joined a broad-based group of over 150 local and national climate, health, faith and clean energy organizations in support of a 100% Clean Energy Standard as part of the sweeping infrastructure bill, the Jobs for Economic Recovery Act of 2021 pending in Congress.

A 100% clean energy standard would accelerate the transition to zero carbon power from the nation’s energy producers. Major power companies have indicated their support for working with the Administration to set a federal clean energy standard aimed at slashing emissions 80% by 2030. Including a clean energy standard provision in the infrastructure bill would be a game-changer for reducing health damaging pollution from energy generation, while boosting the production of clean, renewable energy and associated jobs for all.
