Join Us: Support policies that harness the full potential of renewable energy in the United States.
Together, we can build a clean energy future that produces affordable electricity, creates job opportunities, and delivers a healthier environment for all Americans.
Clean Power for America is leading a nationwide movement to support the smart energy policies we need to unleash the promise of renewable energy. We have the power to make our voices heard. The time is now for a cleaner, more affordable energy future for the United States.
Clean energy is an engine of growth for the American economy, bringing economic opportunity to communities across the country and revitalizing Rural America.
Most of the time, we tend to think of renewable energy as a “green” alternative to conventional fossil fuel plants that are part of a broader climate change solution. While that is true, it is sometimes overlooked the major positive impacts wind and solar energy development have on the economies of rural communities. Earlier this year, the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) shined a light on some of the benefits in…
Electricity production currently makes up more than a quarter of the United States’ carbon emissions. A Clean Energy Standard, or CES, would increase the amount of renewable energy on the grid and help lower carbon emissions produced through power generation. Like renewable portfolio standards in the states, a CES creates goals and incentives for moving the country’s energy mix in a cleaner direction.
After years of debate and public engagement, the American offshore wind sector looks poised to finally start ramping up. While Europe and Asia are ahead of the U.S. on offshore wind deployment, many companies are optimistic about the American market, especially regions off the East Coast that boast strong and steady winds and proximity to major cities to consume the power produced. With costs continuing to fall, the demand for more zero-carbon electricity growing rapidly, and support from state officials and the new Biden administration, the U.S. seems poised for its offshore wind moment.
