Wyden Statement on New Report on Path Forward on Clean Energy

Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released the following statement on the new Rhodium Group report: “Pathways to Build Back Better: Investing in 100% Clean Electricity:”

“This new report calls for technology neutral tax credits, as envisioned in the Clean Energy for America Act, to be the linchpin in plans to move toward a clean energy future. Moving from a hodgepodge of 44 credits to a technology-neutral, emissions-based approach is not just common sense, it is key to achieving the president’s energy goals. Sticking with the same framework will simply not achieve the emissions reductions we need to avert the worst climate outcomes.”
