The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) of 2022 represents the single largest investment in climate and energy in U.S. history, directing billions of dollars towards homeowners, renters, and businesses to lower the cost of clean energy technologies.

The IRA will offer rebates, tax credits, and low-cost financing to make the switch from fossil-fueled appliances and equipment to new, clean electric models. New Yorkers can often combine these IRA benefits with State incentives and programs to maximize savings on electric vehicles, solar panels, energy efficiency upgrades, heat pumps, and more. 

While IRA tax credits can be used for qualifying clean energy equipment purchases made in 2023, IRA rebates are still being developed and are not yet available for consumers.
