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 New Hampshire, the state will receive an estimated $490 million to invest in clean energy projects over the next decade, creating countless new, good-paying jobs. Clean energy jobs in the Granite State already increased 2.2% from 2021-2022, and they are only expected to grow as the IRA continues to help the economy.
