Green Prosperity: How Clean-Energy Policies Can Fight Poverty and Raise Living Standards in the United States
AbstractThis study, co-commissioned by Natural Resources Defense Council and Green For All, considers the employment and other policy effects of a $150 billion annual investment in clean-energy specifically in terms of its ability to raise living standards for lower-income workers and families. This report shows that investments in clean energy can benefit lower-income families first by expanding job opportunities, and also by lowering household utility bills through energy efficiency investments and transportation costs by making public transportation more accessible. >> Read more about the study and download state and regional fact sheets here
