Clean Economy Works: Benefits to Rural America

Large-scale clean energy and clean vehicle projects in the first year of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) are projected to drive $20 billion in private-sector investments and create than 67,000 new, good paying direct and indirect jobs to rural U.S. counties often bypassed by previous economic transitions, according to E2's latest report on the impact of the IRA.

According to BW and E2’s analysis, in addition to new tax revenues, the 52 new large-scale clean energy projects would create 46,000 jobs over 5 years during construction and more than 21,000 jobs annually over the operational life of the projects; $24 billion to U.S. GDP and $2.7 billion annually over the life of the projects; and $17 billion in wages during construction and $1.8 billion during the life of the projects.
