campaign cover

Under the Inflation Reduction Act 2022, a program called 45L allows for up to $5000 per single-family home or multifamily housing unit to achieve the DOE Zero Energy Ready Certification or lower amounts for Energy Star Homes Certification. Join us as we talk with a tax credit consultant and energy rater to learn more about this program and get your questions answered.

Bonus: We will briefly discuss 179D as well, focusing on existing and commercial properties.
