 ACORE to Honor Renewable Energy Champion, U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, at 20th Anniversary Gala 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE), a national nonprofit organization that unites finance, policy and technology to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy, has named U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto as the recipient of this year’s Renewable Energy Champion Award. The award will be presented this evening at ACORE’s 20th Anniversary Gala at Union Station.

“We are excited to recognize Senator Cortez Masto as this year’s Renewable Energy Champion in light of her tireless advocacy for the booming clean energy economy in Nevada and across the country,” said ACORE President and CEO Gregory Wetstone. “Senator Cortez Masto has been a steadfast champion for Nevada’s rich renewable resources, and the many thousands of clean energy workers across the Silver State. Senator Cortez Masto was especially instrumental in the development of the Clean Energy for America Act, critical legislation that would overhaul the federal energy tax code to level the playing field for renewable power. In this legislation and elsewhere she has promoted crucial policies that would modernize our electric grid and promote the deployment of solar and geothermal projects on public lands. We look forward to continuing to work with Senator Cortez Masto to accelerate our transition to a renewable energy economy.”

“We are especially thrilled to be able to honor Senator Cortez Masto on such a special night for ACORE,” Wetstone added. “Tonight’s 20th Anniversary Gala celebrates two decades of impactful advocacy on behalf of the renewable energy sector.  It is also ACORE’s first official in-person event in more than two years. We are grateful for the opportunity to safely celebrate this remarkable milestone in-person thanks to the availability and effectiveness of vaccines and boosters.”
