Rural Clean Energy Projects Get Major Cash Infusion

Biden administration announces $11 billion for rural clean energy projects

"This is an exciting and an historic day and continues an ongoing effort to ensure that rural America is a full participant in the clean energy economy," said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack on the call.
