BCSE Statement on the Release of the Growing Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Now Act
Washington, DC – The president of the Business Council for Sustainable Energy, Lisa Jacobson, issued the following statement:
“BCSE commends House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA), Subcommittee on Select Revenue Measures Chairman Mike Thompson (D-CA) and committee members for their leadership on tax and energy policy. BCSE appreciates the release of the discussion draft of the Growing Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Now (GREEN) Act and its comprehensive and inclusive approach.
"The GREEN Act includes measures to retroactively extend expired credits, to extend and improve soon to be expiring measures and to address new areas of focus. Federal tax policy has been an effective driver of investment and deployment for a broad range of clean energy technologies, resulting in significant benefits to the environment and the American economy.
"BCSE has long-called for predictable policy that provides market signals to spur private sector investment and looks forward to working with Congress as it considers this draft legislation.”
