What is happening
Congress is close to passing the best bill for solar in a generation.
Here are the key parts of the bill for solar supporters to know:
- Homeowners will be able to take a 30% tax credit off the cost of their installation for systems installed any time between now and the end of 2032. The credit then steps down to 26% in 2033 and 22% in 2034.
- The bill includes tax credits for home battery storage energy systems at the same percentage as for solar systems.
- The bill expands the Rural Energy for America Program (REAP). REAP offers grants for rural solar projects.
- The bill provides $9.7 billion in new funding for clean energy transition at rural electric cooperatives.
These key provisions are part of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA).
The IRA will lower energy costs, increase energy security and resiliency. It will ensure all Americans benefit from clean energy.
