The Residential Capital Stack

The Department of Energy (DOE)’s Home Energy Rebate Programs, enacted in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022, aim to save consumers money on home efficiency and electrification upgrades to cut energy use and carbon emissions in residential buildings. The historic $8.8 billion in funding for these programs—the largest pot of money ever for home energy efficiency and electrification rebates—has tremendous potential to reduce residential greenhouse gas emissions, while also helping low- and moderate-income households better heat and cool their homes, save money on their utility bills, and increase resiliency to extreme weather.
To ensure these investments reach their full potential, state rebate programs should coordinate federal, state, and utility dollars while pointing participants to additional federal tax credits. Stacking rebates and tax credits will unlock maximum decarbonization outcomes while saving consumers the greatest amount of money.
