CEE Statement: Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

CEE staff at work

As President Biden signs the Inflation Reduction Act, our team at CEE can’t wait to help make the transition to a more efficient and increasingly electrified Minnesota.

We applaud the work of Congress on this bill, particularly the relentlessness of our state's own Senator Tina Smith.

The IRA will help us build upon a solid infrastructure of Minnesota’s efficiency programs, policies, and organizations who stand ready to carry out this massive transition.

At the same time, we need to challenge our own industry to help make this change.

The energy field has a history of regulating in ways that don’t value the long-term costs of inaction. We perpetuate practices that prevent a more diverse workforce, and we face supply chain challenges simply because we don’t directly engage the supply chain.

In the years ahead, we at CEE plan to face down each of these challenges, as we drive toward a lower carbon economy that works for everyone.

We can’t wait to get started.
