About the Home Energy Rebate Programs

On Aug. 16, 2022, President Joseph R. Biden signed the landmark Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) into law. The law includes $391 billion to support clean energy and address climate change, including $8.8 billion in rebates for home energy efficiency and electrification projects.

These home energy rebate programs will help American households save money on energy bills, upgrade to clean energy equipment and improve energy efficiency, and reduce indoor and outdoor air pollution. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that the historic home energy efficiency and electrification consumer rebates authorized will save households up to $1 billion annually. 

The Office of State and Community Energy Programs (SCEP) is working to distribute these funds so that households across the country can soon access these benefits. The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 includes two provisions authorizing $8.8 billion in rebates for Home Efficiency Rebates and Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates.

Program Highlights -Saves households money on energy; Dedicates a portion of funds for low- and moderate-income households; Improves homes for better comfort; Reduces indoor and outdoor air pollution; Reduces reliance on fossil fuels

What Happens Next

Home Energy Rebate Program funds are not yet available. DOE is currently conducting stakeholder outreach, developing program guidance, and hosting listening sessions with key stakeholders including states, Indian tribes, labor, and industry.

Later in 2023, DOE will make funds available to State Energy Offices and Indian tribes, as defined by the law.

Households looking for home energy retrofit assistance today cannot yet access these rebates, but may be eligible for other federal programs, including tax credits or the Weatherization Assistance Program.
