Dave Kuntz, (202) 572-3570,

  (WASHINGTON, DC – November 19, 2019) Today, Environmental Defense Fund issued the following statement on the introduction of the Growing Renewable Energy and Efficiency Now (GREEN) Act.

 “Encouraging investment in and deployment of clean technologies is critical to achieving a 100 percent clean economy by 2050. We applaud Chairman Neal, Subcommittee Chairman Thompson, and members from the Ways & Means Committee for introducing the GREEN Act, which would extend and expand a wide range of incentives for renewable energy technologies, energy storage, electric vehicles, energy efficiency for homes and buildings, and other technologies that reduce carbon emissions and address the climate crisis. This bill would provide much needed policy certainty to consumers, manufacturers, and investors.”
