Our Research: Clean Energy Economy

Small Business Majority commissions opinion research on the national and state levels to determine small business owners’ views on clean energy and climate legislation, and its effect on their businesses and the economy as a whole. We also conduct in-depth economic research analyzing the economic impact of smart state and federal clean energy policies on small firms. 

We use both our opinion and economic research to communicate the need for strong small business-friendly clean energy measures to policymakers, and educate small business owners and entrepreneurs on how clean energy legislation and polices shape their bottom line. We also build support among those in the small business community for policies that will help small firms grow their business and make them more financially viable.
