Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) was honored on Feb. 1 by Environment Georgia for his 100 percent clean-energy voting record in 2017.

Johnson received the “Environmental Champion” award after he toured clean-energy battery maker sonnen off LaVista Road in Tucker.

“Rep. Johnson voted with our planet and our families 100 percent of the time in 2017,” said Jennette Gayer, executive director of Environment Georgia. “Today’s event is fitting–we are touring a facility dedicated to helping us transition away from dirty energy sources and maximize clean energy from the sun.”

“It’s an honor to be recognized by such an important organization like Environment Georgia,” said Johnson, a member of the bipartisan Safe Climate Caucus that works to solve the important issues around climate change. “Protection of our imperiled planet is the central challenge of our time. Climate change is real and threatens our health, the environment, national security and our economy, and I’m committed to working with anyone on Capitol Hill, the White House and the Fourth District to invest in clean-energy technologies and jobs.”
