Friday, February 4, 2011 - 8:00AM

Rep. John Garamendi, D-Calif., introduced legislation last week that would require 100 percent of all federal and state government-purchased clean energy goods and equipment to be manufactured in America. H.R. 487, the Manufacture Renewable Energy Systems: Make it in America Act, would require any company taking advantage of renewable energy production or investment tax credits to buy 100 percent American content within four years of the bill’s enactment. Rep. Garamendi says that H.R. 487 would ensure that taxpayer dollars are spent on American-made renewable energy systems.
