“The Clean Energy Jobs Act will not only lead to substantial job creation throughout all of Illinois and begin the transition to clean renewable energy, but it will also hold utilities accountable and shape a fairer energy policy that prioritizes Illinois residents,” Moylan said. “Climate change is an existential threat that we have to address now. The way to do that is to transition to clean energy and create jobs in that sector, which is what CEJA would accomplish.”
The Moylan-supported House Bill 804 already has strong support in the General Assembly with more than 30 House cosponsors. The legislation would commit Illinois to 100% renewable energy by 2050 and substantially increase the development of renewable energy infrastructure, creating thousands of jobs in the process. The bill also aims to have achieved a carbon-free power sector by 2030 and would empower local communities by incentivizing increased local investments in energy, transportation, workforce and environmental projects.
“The clean energy market is one of the fastest growing sectors today, and this legislation would embrace that growth and be a massive job creator, which is sorely needed in the current economic climate,” Moylan said. “I am confident that in the new session we will be able to capitalize on the strong support of this legislation and commit to making the Illinois energy industry completely clean and an example for the rest of the country to strive toward.”
