APPA Applauds Inclusion of Public Power Priorities in the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022

Washington D.C., July 29, 2022— Statement from the American Public Power Association:

The American Public Power Association applauds the provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act that support investment in clean energy technologies—and makes these investments available to all Americans, including those served by the more than 2,000 public power utilities operating nationwide. If the Manchin/Schumer compromise bill is enacted, these provisions will make federal energy investment incentives more efficient and more fair—helping to ensure that American energy stays affordable, reliable, clean, and secure. Finally, given rising electricity prices, APPA also appreciates congressional leadership’s commitment to work toward legislation to speed up much-needed siting and permitting of energy infrastructure.
