Rep. Robert Bierman on a just transition to clean energy:
“Public housing construction needs to incorporate more clean energy standards. More public investment in energy efficiency and weatherization programs need to be significantly increased. We are barely making a dent in the need and low income households spend more of their income on energy. An investment in electric buses starting in the metro area would help mitigate air pollution in the city. Opportunity zones, centered in low income communities, and requiring renewables as well as local employment could attract jobs, investment and help create economic vitality where it is needed.”
