A useful learning and networking opportunity in the Good Jobs and Equity in a Clean Energy Economy webinar on February 7. Here’s the description:
On September 15, 2021, Illinois Governor JB Pritzker signed the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act legislation into law that put the state on a path towards a 100% clean energy future by 2050. Key elements of the law include investments in training a diverse workforce, key ratepayer and residential customer protections, and implemented a displaced worker bill of rights. Illinois is the first state in the Midwest to enact legislation to combat the climate crisis and build an economy for the future.
