WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) introduced the Reclaiming the Solar Supply Chain Act to expand the solar manufacturing supply chain in the U.S. and enhance our global competitiveness. This legislation also supports good-paying union jobs by requiring solar manufacturing facilities to have strong labor protections to be eligible for this funding.

“Investing in Made in America solar manufacturing will create good paying jobs, move us toward a renewable energy future, and help provide low-cost clean energy for American families,” said Senator Baldwin. “I’m proud to support this legislation because American manufacturers, businesses, and workers should be building our clean energy economy.”

The Reclaiming the Solar Supply Chain Act would provide $3 billion in grants and loans over the next 5 years to fund the construction of new U.S. solar facilities, or to retool, retrofit, or expand existing solar manufacturing facilities.

The Reclaiming the Solar Supply Chain Act is sponsored by Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA). This legislation is also supported by the Securing America’s Future Energy (SAFE) Center for Critical Minerals Strategy, Sierra Club, Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), and the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE).
