Statement from Elizabeth Gore, Senior Vice President, Environmental Defense Fund

“EDF applauds Representatives Barragán and Clarke for their commitment to build more resilient communities and prioritize environmental justice through expanded investments in clean energy microgrids. By ensuring we have strong and resilient electricity infrastructure, the Energy Resilient Communities Act helps provide critical protections for communities in the face of increasingly intense and destructive extreme weather events driven by the climate crisis.” -
