On September 15, 2021, Illinois governor J.B. Pritzker signed historic clean energy legislation into law. SB 2408 will bring billions of dollars in investment and thousands of clean energy jobs to Illinois.
Known as the Energy Transition Act, this landmark legislation sets ambitious climate goals for the state. It pledges that Illinois will use 100% clean energy by 2050, and 40% by 2030.
The benefits of the Energy Transition Act are now on track to becoming reality for the state. Those benefits include:
This is exactly the kind of forward-looking energy policy that Illinois needs to continue being the fastest growing state in the Midwest for wind energy.
It is important to let elected officials know that we appreciate their efforts to build a clean energy future for the United States. If you are an Illinois resident, send an email to Governor Pritzker and state legislators to thank them for signing this monumental renewable energy legislation into law.
