EEI Applauds Passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

WASHINGTON (November 5, 2021) – Edison Electric Institute (EEI) President Tom Kuhn today issued the following statement:

"On behalf of America's investor-owned electric companies, EEI congratulates Congress for passing a broad, bipartisan infrastructure bill that will make significant investments in the critical energy infrastructure and new carbon-free technologies our industry needs to deliver a 100-percent clean energy future to the customers and communities we serve.

“This legislation also provides an important down payment on the electric vehicle charging infrastructure and low/no-emission buses that will help to accelerate the electrification of the transportation sector, which currently is the largest source of carbon emissions in the U.S. economy.

"Customers and communities across the country also will benefit from this legislation's support for investments in middle-mile broadband infrastructure, which will help to bridge the digital divide for underserved and unserved areas.

“EEI’s member companies are working to get the energy we provide as clean as we can as fast as we can, while maintaining the reliability and affordability that our customers value. This legislation strongly supports the transition to a carbon-free economy, and we look forward to President Biden signing it into law."
