Indiana Businesses for a Clean Energy Economy Release New Jobs Report Day Before Senate Hearings Start
Indianapolis, October 26, 2009: On the eve of U.S. Senate deliberations on clean energy and climate legislation, Indiana Businesses for a Clean Energy Economy released a new economic analysis that finds the strongest federal policy could create up to 45,000 jobs in the Hoosier state, while increasing incomes by $1,200 and growing the state economy by $2.5 billon. ??
The new study, Clean Energy and Climate Policy for US Growth and Job Creation: An Economic Assessment of the American Clean Energy and Security Act and the Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act was conducted by the University of California in collaboration with University of Illinois and Yale University. It provides an in-depth, state-by-state examination of the impacts of three pillars of federal legislation: energy efficiency, renewable energy and limits on carbon pollution.?“This report shows that the stronger the federal energy and climate policies, the more Indiana stands to gain economically,” Mark Wagner, Vice President for Government Relations at Johnson Controls. “Those who say we cannot afford to take action now do not understand the opportunity we stand to lose by not acting. There is an emerging multibillion dollar global clean energy market and Indiana is poised to capture its leading edge.”
