Powering a stronger, more sustainable U.S. economy

By creating jobs and opportunity in communities across America, clean energy is a win-win-win,  benefitting American workers, the economy and environment.

Growing every day, the sector already employs more than 415,000 workers and has injected more than $1 trillion into the US economy.  Continued renewable energy development, production, transmission and battery storage will help to make electricity more reliable, affordable and sustainable for families and businesses while reducing the carbon emissions that contribute to climate change.

What is clean power?
