[OP-ED] Want clean energy and jobs? Then don’t kill copper mine.

Making the Biden administration’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan a reality will require two things: skilled workers and a reliable source for raw materials.

Arizona has the potential to supply both.

The nation’s clean energy transformation could be an enormous boost to our state’s economy for generations to come if we make smart investments right now with the needs of working families in mind.

The most obvious opportunity for Arizona lies in copper, arguably the most important metal needed to power our clean energy future. The U.S. needs copper to build electric vehicles and charging stations.

We need it for wind turbines and solar panels, as well as the transmission lines that connect renewable energy sources to the grid. We need it for storage batteries and a host of other innovative new technologies. We also need the rare earth critical minerals that are byproducts of copper.
