A new online resource on the Inflation Reduction Act and how it can benefit contractors and consumers is now live on the SMACNA homepage. On this page, you can review resources on topics including:
- Tax credits and rebates that are available for retrofits.
- Financing for competitive grants designed to encourage quick deployment of improvements.
- Permitting Reforms.
- Updated Language on Energy Efficiency Standards for Schools.
- Regulatory comments from SMACNA and SMART on the Inflation Reduction Act.
Signed into law in August of 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act represents a tremendous victory for SMACNA, as it secures funding for several of SMACNA’s key energy efficiency initiatives. The law also promotes the use of Registered Apprenticeship programs. Further, it strengthens prevailing wage standards codified within the Davis Bacon Act.
