In 2022, Congress enacted a PennEnvironment-backed law designed to reduce U.S. emissions 40 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. A new guidebook just released by the Biden-Harris administration details Inflation Reduction Act programs that individuals, businesses, cities, and community organizations across Pennsylvania can utilize, including tax credits for rooftop solar and electric vehicles.

PennEnvironment Executive Director David Masur was quoted in the White House Announcement: “The Inflation Reduction Act’s tax credits and climate programs will help Pennsylvanians breathe cleaner air, make their homes more energy efficient and expand our use of clean, renewable energy. Thanks to the new Implementation Guidebook, it’ll be easier for cities, school districts, community organizations and all Pennsylvanians to understand and utilize these beneficial programs.”

PennEnvironment is teaming up with Environment America, Environment America Research & Policy Center, U.S. PIRG, and U.S. PIRG Education Fund to educate Pennsylvanians about the new climate and clean energy programs available to them. The Clean Energy Home Toolkit provides a one-stop-shop for guides and resources for weatherizing your home, cutting energy bills, buying an electric car, and information on the rebates & incentives in the Inflation Reduction Act.

“Climate change is a problem that impacts all of us,” said Lisa Frank, executive director of Environment America’s Washington Legislative Office. “Now, the Inflation Reduction Act helps us all be part of the solution too, by making it cheaper and easier for Americans to go solar, purchase an electric vehicle or weatherize their home. This new implementation guidebook will help raise awareness of new tax incentives and other programs we can use to take President Biden up on this historic offer to save energy, save money and save the planet. We’re excited to put it to work.”
