Biden to Commemorate Earth Day with Announcement of $7 Billion in Federal Solar Power Grants

President Joe Biden is announcing $7 billion in federal grants for residential solar projects to serve low- and middle-income communities, and plans to expand the American Climate Corps green jobs training program. These grants, awarded by the EPA, are expected to reduce emissions by 30 million metric tons of carbon dioxide and save households $350 million annually. Solar energy is seen as a renewable energy source that can reduce reliance on fossil fuels and boost the reliability of the electric grid. Biden’s environmental initiatives are seen as a way to energize young voters ahead of his reelection campaign. Eager young Americans are invested in Biden’s climate agenda and want to help enact it through the Climate Corps initiative.
