In March, President Joe Biden called on Congress to pass the “American Jobs Plan.” The plan would achieve 100% clean electricity nationwide by 2035. It would invest $100 billion to modernize the grid, $400 billion in incentives for wind and solar and other renewables, $222 billion for electric vehicle research and charging stations, $10 billion in a “Climate Crisis Corps,” and more. It also calls for equity and justice at every step, with investments in underserved communities like removing lead pipes from every single community in America.
