Statement from the Illinois Clean Jobs Coalition on Siting Bill

“The Illinois Clean Jobs Coalition applauds the passage of House Bill 4412, which standardizes and clarifies the process of siting clean energy projects like utility-scale wind and solar. To lower electric bills, create good paying jobs, make our air healthier to breathe and protect the planet from climate change, Illinois must build more clean energy capacity faster as we move away from dirty, expensive fossil fuels like coal and gas. With Governor Pritzker’s signature, we can now do this with consistent standards that respect communities across the state.”
