Solar Advocacy: Thank Congress for a big solar win

Celebrate a great solar victory

What is happening

When solar supporters join together, we win! This is why Congress passed the best bill for solar in a generation.

Here’s how the bill makes it easier for you and your community to go solar:

  • Homeowners will be able to take a 30% tax credit off the cost of their installation for systems installed between this year 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).

Make your voice heard

Take a moment to email your lawmakers. Personalize your message. If you have solar, tell them how it has benefited your family. If your lawmakers voted for the bill, thank them. If they didn’t, ask them to support solar energy in the future so that everyone can enjoy its benefits.
