Inflation Reduction Act Projects

We’re excited to showcase the impact of the Inflation Reduction Act in Michigan!

The Inflation Reduction Act (known as the IRA) is a comprehensive federal legislative package that aims to reduce inflation by investing in clean energy, healthcare, and tax reforms. Homeowners and drivers can benefit from rebates and incentives for energy-efficient home upgrades, renewable energy installations, and electric vehicle purchases.
