SEPA Statement on Infrastructure Investment and Jobs 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 Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

“The signing of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is a critical step forward in our country’s efforts to address the needed advancements in our infrastructure, especially our power grid and electric vehicle charging networks. We support the foundational efforts in this bill, and recognize that now the hard work begins.

“As the investments outlined in the Act are deployed, we must ensure that they better prepare us to combat climate change. We must pair transmission and electric vehicle charging investment with equally strong distribution system investment. We must continue to evolve our regulatory structures and business models alongside deployment of new technology. And we must ensure that these investments result in an energy transition that is equitable, providing all Americans with safe, reliable, affordable and clean electricity.”
