American Clean Power Launches Ads in Seven States and D.C. Urging Congress to Pass Clean Power Infrastructure Bills to Create Jobs

13 Sep 2021

As Congress continues work to pass historic infrastructure packages, the American Clean Power Association (ACP) launched the next phase of its Powering American Jobs campaign this week with advertisements in seven states and Washington D.C. The ads feature clean energy workers and urge Congress to pass infrastructure legislation with smart and predictable incentives that will boost investments and create additional jobs in the industry. 

“Congress has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to update our country’s aging infrastructure, much of it battered by extreme weather events, to ensure a clean energy future for all Americans. The adoption of stable policies will drive investment so our industry can accelerate the delivery of projects, create more good-paying jobs and help the U.S. meet emissions reduction targets,” said Heather Zichal, CEO of American Clean Power. “Industry momentum combined with supportive policies and regulations could deliver over 1 million clean energy jobs by 2030 across the country.

The 30-second video ads will run while Congress considers these important job creating investments in a clean energy future.
