Green building upgrades can make your building or home healthier and more comfortable while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helping save money on utility bills. There are multiple currently available and upcoming incentives from the federal, state, regional and local level to help you earn savings on your next green building project. These incentives include direct rebates, tax credits and affordable loans. Many of these incentives are stackable to ensure maximum savings.


With the recent passage of President Biden’s landmark bill, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), many green building rebates are set to become available in early 2023. Check out this resource from Rewiring America to see how much you will get from the IRA to make energy efficiency upgrades. More than $582 million has been allocated to California for the Home Energy Rebate Program, which is set to become available in late 2023. You can also check out this guide on IRA incentives in 2023 from Switch is On. Read more about how you will benefit from the IRA Here.
