From our partners at the Illinois Power Agency and the Illinois Clean Jobs Coalition:

The Illinois Power Agency (IPA) is offering a series of educational and informative webinars to discuss how the recently enacted Climate Equitable Jobs Act (“CEJA”) revises and expands the Illinois Renewable Portfolio Standard, including strengthening equity, diversity, and labor standards for IPA-administered incentive programs to build a stronger, more diverse and equitable clean energy workforce. After this initial series is completed the IPA will be offering future Power Hour Webinars on other topical areas. The Power Hour Webinar Series will be recorded and available on the Agency’s website.

IPA Power Hour Webinars are 60 minutes long from 12pm-1pm CDT. Registration is required. After you register, you’ll receive a confirmation email with information on how to join the webinar. Remaining Power Hours include:

The Illinois Clean Jobs Coalition (ICJC) is made up of hundreds of environmental groups, healthcare professionals, environmental justice champions, businesses, community leaders, labor groups, consumer advocates, and faith-based organizations from across the state. The ICJC played a central role in the passage of the Future Energy Jobs Act in 2016.

Members of the coalition are joined in this effort by representatives from labor and industry – including business owners and representatives of the 100,000 people across the state who are employed in the clean energy sector, including the wind, solar and energy efficiency industries.
