Sen. Ossoff Introduces Legislation to Incentivize American Solar Manufacturing Jobs

June 23, 2021
Ben Schneider, (202) 572-3279,

“The Solar Energy Manufacturing for America Act introduced by Senator Jon Ossoff will help position the American solar energy industry to be competitive in the global marketplace. The bill establishes tax credits to incentivize the manufacturing and production of solar energy technology in the United States. And that expansion of clean and renewable energy production will create jobs, help revitalize American manufacturing, and play a major role in our fight to combat the climate crisis.

“We thank Senator Ossoff, along with Senators Raphael Warnock, Michael Bennet, and Debbie Stabenow, who co-sponsored the bill, for their climate leadership at this pivotal time.”
