One year after the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, a once-in-a-generation investment in the climate and clean energy, it is clear that the landmark law has already had positive impacts on the national and state economies. As of July 2023, the IRA has already created over 170,000 new clean energy jobs, and is expected to create an additional 1.5 million jobs throughout the next decade.

Here in Michigan, the state has invested over $21 billion in clean energy projects, and nearly 16,000 new, good-paying jobs have been created since the IRA’s passage, as of July 2023. These projects are expected to create over 167,000 new jobs over the next 10 years.
