Report: Inflation Reduction Act could bring over 24K jobs to Wisconsin

The federal Inflation Reduction Act could bring more than 24,000 jobs to Wisconsin over the next decade, while also helping utilities, businesses, and homeowners adopt renewable energy technologies, according to a report from Wisconsin Public Radio.

That’s according to a recent analysis of the law’s climate and energy provisions by Data for Progress, a left-leaning think tank.

While Wisconsin already has 71,000 clean energy jobs, Data for Progress estimates the Inflation Reduction Act, or IRA, may create or preserve 4,080 direct jobs, 13,300 indirect jobs, and 6,930 induced jobs.
