About the Home Energy Rebates

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 rebates 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 these rebates will save households up to a $1 billion on energy bills each year and support over 50,000 U.S. jobs. This website includes information about the IRA Home Efficiency Rebates and Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates.

DOE envisions that the Home Energy Rebates will help grow the equitable clean energy economy by scaling access to and demand for home energy upgrades for all. The mission of DOE’s Home Energy Rebates team is to work with diverse market actors to leverage the unprecedented IRA investment in residential efficiency and electrification to develop, discover, and scale successful models for home energy upgrades.
