Ways and Means Committee: Total of all wind, solar, and other renewable electricity tax incentives (using the Joint Committee on Taxation score: https://www.jct.gov/publications/2021/jcx-41-21/)
The $400 billion for clean energy tax incentives is part of the $1.138 trillion that's needed in wind, solar, and geothermal energy investments. Economic modeling shows that this public investment level is necessary to enable a 50 percent decrease in U.S. greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, in line with President Biden’s Nationally Determined Contribution to the Paris Agreement and the IPCC recommendations to limit global warming to 1.5°C. This assumes that this level of public investments will be matched by private investments that are three times as large (several relevant models use a roughly 1 to 3 ratio of public to private investments in clean energy, including analyses from the Political Economy Research Institute and the Union of Concerned Scientists). This calculation also uses the mid-point in the range of possible renewable energy costs produced by the Political Economy Research Institute.

|Clean electricity performance program||$0||$0||$150,000,000,000|
Energy and Commerce Committee: "The CEPP, which complements tax incentives for clean energy, will issue grants to and collect payments from electricity suppliers from 2023 through 2030 based on how much qualified clean electricity each supplier provides to customers...An electricity supplier will be eligible for a grant if it increases the amount of clean electricity it supplies to customers by 4 percent compared to the previous year...An electricity supplier that does not increase its clean electricity percentage by at least 4 percent compared to the previous year will owe a payment to DOE based on the shortfall...Eligible clean electricity is electricity generation with a carbon intensity of not more than 0.10 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per megawatt-hour."
The $250 billion for a clean energy payment program is part of the $1.138 trillion that's needed in wind, solar, and geothermal energy investments.
