Vice President Kamala Harris Visits Georgia To Take Credit For Green Investments

On Thursday, Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to Dalton, Georgia, to highlight attention what has been referred to as “the Biden-Harris Administration’s Investing in America agenda.” The event featuring the vice president “aims to highlight how the administration is building a clean energy economy that benefits all citizens and creates good-paying jobs.”

The Investing in America agenda is promoted as a major initiative of the Biden-Harris Administration to advance broad but perhaps vague goals and particularities “designed to create new jobs and boost economic growth across the country by investing in infrastructure, innovation, and the workforce.” As reported, the plan also focuses on strengthening the middle class and promoting “equity and inclusion for all Americans.”

The Biden-Harris Administration “views investment in clean energy as a key driver of economic growth and job creation,” which vision, as illustrated by the Investing in America agenda, shall emphasize “supporting clean energy industries and promoting sustainable practices across the country.” The vice president’s visit is presented as an example of their administration’s “commitment to this agenda.” The administration claims this initiative has the “potential to transform the American economy.”

An example of a positive economic investment in Georgia is the South Korean solar panel maker QCells, which announced in January that “it will spend $2.5 billion to build a new plant in Cartersville and expand the capacity of the existing facility in Dalton.” Optimistically, the new facility and expansion are expected to bring 2,500 new jobs to Georgia.
