President Biden offered a momentous, but simple, framework for his Joint Address to Congress on April 28: “Tonight I come to talk about crisis and opportunity.” He commented on the COVID pandemic, the economy, and the climate crisis. Linking economic health and climate health, the President spoke about productive re-employment of America’s workforce: “For too long we’ve failed to use the most important word when it comes to meeting the climate crisis: Jobs. Jobs. Jobs.”
It took decades of experimenting, technological ingenuity, and creative thinking to get to today’s pivotal moment of “reimagining and rebuilding” the United States. Thanks to VEIC’s 35 years of delivering equitable and innovative clean-energy solutions to the market, we know that achieving the ambitious goals in the American Jobs Plan is possible. It will require scaling up new technologies and implementing a diverse set of strategies. The good news is: We're ready.
