SEPA Statement on Inflation Reduction Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Julia Hamm, President and CEO of the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) has issued the following statement on today’s signing of the Inflation Reduction Act.

“The signing of the Inflation Reduction Act signals our country’s commitment to combating the climate crisis through an accelerated transformation to a carbon-free electricity system. When paired with the 2021 Infrastructure and Jobs Act, these policies and funding will support the vast number of entities, including states, cities, utilities and large energy users, who have made commitments to aggressive carbon-reduction goals.

We support the foundational efforts in this bill, including extending and expanding a variety of critical energy tax incentives, and providing funding for electrification, resilience, and building efficiency efforts, that will provide significant long-term benefits to customers and deliver a clean and equitable energy future. We encourage the swift implementation of these policies and look forward to helping our members and industry stakeholders leverage these historic investments to accelerate progress.”
