Join Us: Support policies that harness the full potential of renewable energy in the United States.
From October 25-29, 2021, we’re celebrating the first-ever American Clean Power Week (ACPW), an entire week dedicated to recognizing the ways clean energy is building a better future for the United States.
ACPW is an evolution of the former American Wind Week, intended to recognize the full spectrum of clean energy technologies. ACPW is the nationwide celebration of clean energy and the good-paying jobs the industry creates for Americans across all 50 states. Its purpose is to showcase the clean energy technologies – land-based wind, offshore wind, solar, energy storage, and transmission infrastructure – that are powering homes and businesses, creating good-paying jobs, investing in communities, reducing costs for consumers, and helping to meet our national 100% carbon-free power goal by 2035.
ACPW’s 2021 theme is the United States of Clean Energy. All week long, we’re highlighting how land-based and offshore wind power, solar power, energy storage, and transmission infrastructure deliver increasingly affordable, reliable, clean energy to millions of American families and businesses, and how together, clean energy is powering good-paying American jobs across all 50 states. Join in on the national celebration and conversation on social media by using the hashtags #AmericanCleanPowerWeek and #UnitedStatesofCleanEnergy.
2021 is an exciting year for clean energy, new 21st-century job creation, and the fight against climate change. Earlier this year, the Biden administration proposed the American Jobs Plan, a roadmap for putting Americans back to work building our country’s critical infrastructure that will support the energy transition. From red states to blue states, there are opportunities for all Americans in the new clean energy economy.
Each day of the week we’ll celebrate a different clean energy technology:
The clean power workforce of 415,000 is represented in all 50 states and we’re proud to celebrate them during American Clean Power Week. With wind technician and solar installer as two of the country’s fastest-growing jobs, clean power is powering American jobs and economic opportunities throughout the nation. In the coming years, over 1 million Americans will have direct clean energy jobs.
