The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022 represents the single largest investment in climate and energy in American history. The IRA directs approximately $8.5 billion to State Energy Offices and Indian Tribes to administer two new residential energy efficiency rebate programs. Additionally, these provisions provide $200 million to fund residential energy contractor training programs. Distribution of these funds is being managed by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) new Office of State and Community Energy Programs (SCEP). SCEP is launching a coordinated stakeholder engagement strategy to help shape the implementation of a residential efficiency and electrification rebates program and ensure the full economic and environmental benefits of this historic investment are realized by all Americans.
This informational webinar will highlight key program design considerations for the Home Owner Managing Energy Savings (HOMES) Rebate Program (Sec. 50121), High-Efficiency Electric Home Rebate (HEEHRA) Program, (Sec. 50122), and the Home Energy Efficiency Contractor Training Grants (Sec. 50123). DOE will also preview its plans for upcoming listening sessions to allow members of the public and key stakeholder groups to provide insights to DOE staff on the implementation of a residential efficiency and electrification rebates program.
