Now more than ever before, clean energy is powering homes and businesses across Alabama. Recognizing this, Gov. Kay Ivey recently issued a proclamation celebrating Sept. 25 through 29 as Clean Energy Week in the state of Alabama.
With Alabama serving as the fourth-largest generator of electricity from nuclear power, the governor recognizes the economic opportunity, job creation and healthier environment that comes from embracing clean energy. In just Alabama, the clean energy sector has created over 44,000 jobs.
The governor’s proclamation is part of a larger celebration happening across the United States. In the nation’s capital, clean energy leaders and advocates from all perspectives will be convening to celebrate National Clean Energy Week (NCEW) and discuss innovations and policy solutions that empower America to lead the pack in reducing global emissions and securing affordable, reliable energy for all.
Thanks to Gov. Ivey, Alabama is an active participant in this national celebration and continues to invest in critical clean energy initiatives and clean energy jobs.
