The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA)
$8.8B in rebates and incentives for home upgrades, and $200M for state-based home energy-efficiency contractor training grants
BPA’s latest achievement is helping to secure billions of dollars in rebates and incentives for home energy efficiency and electrification, plus hundreds of millions of dollars to train workers for the jobs that funding will create, by helping shape the 2022 Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).
Our next step is to make sure our members benefit from the surge of IRA funding. We are monitoring federal developments and staying in touch with state energy offices. BPA will keep members up to date on opportunities arising from the IRA.
