Celebrating Biden's Affordable Clean Energy Plan
President Biden’s Affordable Clean Energy Plan is the largest investment in clean energy in United States history and is already starting to boost Wisconsin's economy in a major way. People in Wisconsin and all across the country are seeing once-in-a-generation investments that will save people money, make our communities healthier by reducing pollution, and create good paying jobs.
Thanks to Pres. Biden and our climate champions in Congress, Sen. Tammy Baldwin, Rep. Mark Pocan, and Rep. Gwen Moore, the Clean Energy Plan was signed into law as part of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022. It is a historic $370 billion federal investment in clean energy and climate action.
It has been transformative for Wisconsin’s businesses, workers and residents, having already spurred $445 million in investments and moving forward more than 500 clean energy jobs.
➔ ABB Inc. announced a $100 million investment to build electric drive units for EVs in New Berlin, creating 100 new jobs. In making the announcement, the company cited increased condence in the U.S. market driven by the IRA.
➔ In May 2023, Ingeteam also announced it would add 100 new jobs to its Milwaukee EV charger manufacturing facility.
➔ Wisconsin utilities are increasing their battery storage investments following the IRA. In September 2022, Alliant Energy shared plans to add utility-scale battery storage systems to its solar energy farms in Wood and Grant Counties. A spokesperson for the company said it accelerated plans for battery storage following the passage of the IRA.
➔ The federal government’s “focus on renewables” drove Excellerate’s decision to build a new electrical component manufacturing facility in Little Chute, according to the company’s Executive VP. The facility will create 200 new jobs.
