One of this year’s most highly anticipated pieces of legislation is a huge step closer to becoming a law — and it has big implications for clean energy. The Build Back Better Act passed the House of Representatives and is on track to become a game changer in the world of renewable energy. Critically, the legislation will extend clean energy tax credits through the decade. Tax incentives are a tried-and-true tool for growing clean energy and are responsible for a significant part of the widespread growth of clean energy we’ve seen over the past decade. When it comes to creating a future built on energy that doesn’t pollute or harm our planet, these credits are essential.
