  • Inflation Reduction Act Resources to Help You Electrify Your Home

    "The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is the largest climate and clean energy investment America has ever made, with strategic incentives to make the transition to clean energy and a decarbonized life easy, financially smart, and equitable. It created programs to help you go electric — swapping out your old, fossil-fueled appliances for new, clean electric ones — over the next ten years. The IRA’s home energy offerings include upfront discounts, tax credits, and low-cost financing that together provide a substantial pot of money for every household to electrify the machines they rely on — the cars they drive, how they heat the air and water in their homes, cook their food, dry their clothes and get their power — regardless of income level. Much of the solution to the climate crisis is just doing two things: getting all the carbon out of our electricity supply, and then electrifying everything we can. As people of faith and conscience, shifting our household energy use to efficient technologies that use renewable energy is an opportunity to help bring about climate justice based on our shared values: caring for one another and our common home. Jamal Lewis, Director of Policy Partnerships and Equitable Electrification for Rewiring America, joins us for a conversation on electrification, what it looks like, and what federal resources are available to help you do it. Join us to learn more about the incentives that will be available to help make your home healthier and more efficient."

  • Climate and Energy Resources for Faith Communities: A Briefing with the U.S. Department of Energy

    "The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) created the largest climate and clean energy investment America has ever made. These bills provide federal funding for energy and climate resiliency improvements that can be used in houses of worship and our individual homes. This historic legislation provides people of faith and conscience with an opportunity to live our values of caring for one another and for our Sacred Earth. The IRA included clean energy tax credits for wind and solar, EVs, efficiency upgrades, heat pumps, and much more. It also made it easier for nonprofits and houses of worship to access clean energy funds and tax credits through a program called 'direct pay.' Before the IRA, only homeowners and commercial entities with some tax liability could claim tax credits when installing solar panels or other eligible technologies on an eligible property. Now, the 'direct pay' option means non-taxable entities can also benefit from these credits. Join us for a briefing with the U.S. Department of Energy to learn more about direct pay, the tax credits, the programs, and the role faith communities can play in helping our country address the climate crisis and ensure that all communities are supported. If you aren't able to attend, you can still register, and we will send the recording out to everyone who registered."
