Energy Provisions In The Inflation Reduction Act

R-Squared Energy

Let’s discuss the energy provisions in the bill. Before reading through the bill, I like to get a feel for the kinds of energy programs it addresses. For example, a big part of our energy policy over the past decade has been ramping up the nation’s biofuel programs. The bill provides direct consumer incentives to buy energy efficient and electric appliances, clean vehicles, rooftop-solar systems, and invests in home energy efficiency.
