What’s Biden’s $2 Trillion Energy Plan All About?
On July 14, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden unveiled his blueprint for solar power and renewable energy. The massive, $2 trillion plan is designed to revitalize the country’s commitment to a clean energy economy, create millions of union jobs building the wind turbines, sustainable homes, and electric vehicles, and substantially reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.
In a speech streamed from his home in Wilmington, Delaware, Biden said, “These investments are a win, win, win for our country.”
A Carbon Pollution-Free Power Sector by 2035
The goal of Biden’s green energy plan is for the country to achieve a carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035. To accomplish this, the renewable energy industry would need to start making rapid changes, including accelerating the deployment of renewable wind and solar power as well as electricity storage. While the country would still rely on emission-free nuclear power for some time, the transition to clean energy will greatly help enable the country to meet the growing threat of climate change while at the same time creating millions of jobs in the green energy field.
The $2 trillion plan is designed to be implemented over a four-year period, in which the country would see significant commitment and growth in its renewable energy infrastructure. This includes getting cleaner cars on the road and creating zero-emission mass transit systems. Some of the plan’s funds are also earmarked for increasing sustainable home building, as well as promoting clean energy innovation and conservation.
Biden energy plan hopes to create one million new jobs in the American auto industry. It is also committed to ensuring that American cities with more than 100,000 residents would have zero-emission public transportation, all built by union workers. In addition, union workers would also be put to work upgrading more than four million buildings and weatherizing at least two million homes across the country over the next four years.
How Will Biden’s Green Energy Plan Be Funded?
No official word from the Biden campaign has been released as to how the plan will be funded, however a representative who asked not to be identified prior to Biden’s announcement, said that “tax increases on corporations and the wealthy” would be part of the plan. The Biden campaign said that the tax increases would raise $4 trillion over the next decade, meaning that Biden’s plan would not need to add to the country’s deficit to pay for the costs.
