Electrify Now’s The Inflation Reduction Act – What’s in it for you

October 11, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Inflation Reduction Act – What’s in it for you

The IRA is packed with incentives for home electrification, EVs and more – find out how it will impact home retrofits and new construction.

About this event

Many people say the Inflation Reduction Act is the most significant climate bill ever passed in the U.S. It will provide billions of dollars in rebates, tax incentives and loan guarantees to help transition our economy toward clean renewables and electrification.

Some of the details are yet to be worked out, but a lot is known about how this will impact us as homeowners, builders and architects, and the industries that are critical to a low carbon economy.

Join us and Rewiring America for a detailed look at the incentives within the IRA and what they will mean for home electrification. We will be addressing the following questions:

  • What kind of home improvements are covered by the IRA?
  • How is the appliance rebate program structured?
  • Are their income qualifications for rebates and tax incentives
  • When do we expect these rebates and incentives will be available?
  • How will the IRA impact new building construction?
  • How does the IRA stimulate industry investment in renewable energy?

She got excited about electrification as a cost-effective, job-creating, and equitable climate solution through representing the Sunrise Movement Los Angeles on the SoCal Building Electrification Coalition. Cora received her bachelor’s degree in Physics from UNC Chapel Hill. She is from the Bay Area, and currently lives in Los Angeles with her wife and their cat.
