What Can a Biden Climate Plan Do for Clean Energy?

Dec 20, 2020

The future of solar looks bright to us here at Energy Saving Pros in Sacramento! Solar power is here to stay, and Biden’s clean energy plan could help bring solar power to more people. Although California already leads the nation in clean energy production, Biden’s climate plan promises to invest extensively in clean power and to create more jobs in clean energy. 

What does the Biden climate plan mean for California?

Protection of Communities and Land

Biden promises to support communities suffering the effects of climate change with stronger infrastructure and clean power. Biden also plans to create a national program that will make energy efficiency retrofits more affordable for American homes. Moreover, Biden staunchly opposes all drilling on federal lands, which means that California’s national parks and national forests will remain protected.

One of the main goals of Biden’s clean energy plan is to accelerate the development and implementation of clean energy innovations, focusing first on the communities most affected by climate change. Biden promises to stand up to polluters that put low-income communities at risk. 

Building of Infrastructure

Biden has promised to get the United States back on track when it comes to clean energy. Biden will recommit our nation to the Paris Agreement on climate change and invest in clean energy for our national infrastructure. The Biden administration will partner with local universities to collect relevant data and develop climate resilience plans that support local infrastructure. 

Biden promises that “every dollar spent toward rebuilding our roads, bridges, buildings, the electric grid, and our water infrastructure will be used to prevent, reduce, and withstand a changing climate.”

Boosting the Economy 

Biden’s proposed Green New Deal will also revitalize the U.S. energy sector and boost local economies by creating millions of new jobs in clean energy:

“More than three million people in the United States are already employed in the clean energy economy. But, that is only the beginning of what is possible if we harness all of our talent and creativity. If executed strategically, our response to climate change can create more than 10 million well-paying jobs in the United States that will grow a stronger, more inclusive middle class enjoyed by communities across the country.”

From new jobs to a more resilient grid, Biden’s Green New Deal will put clean energy at the forefront of American economic development.
