Washington Recovery Act State Memo

Washington State has substantial natural resources, including biomass, wind, geothermal, and hydroelectric power. The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA)is making a meaningful down payment on the nation’s energy and environmental future. The Recovery Act investments in Washington are supporting a broad range of clean energy projects from energy efficiency and the smart grid to wind, biomass, and geothermal, as well as cleaning up the legacy of Cold War nuclear facilities at Hanford. Through these investments, Washington’s businesses, non‐profits, and local governments are creating quality jobs today and positioning Washington to play an important role in the new energy economy of the future.
