The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is the most significant legislation in U.S. history to ever address climate change, clean energy and sustainability. But you may be surprised to know that it contains a lot more than just incentives for solar and wind. The IRA will deploy hundreds of billions of dollars to support a surprising range of capital projects across many sectors (including certain fossil fuel projects). In addition to giving governmental entities, non-profits, electric rural co-ops, and tribal entities (among others) access to various tax credits for the first time, the IRA also permits the transfer and monetization of tax credits now. Funds under the IRA will be delivered through a mix of tax incentives, loans, loan forgiveness, guarantees, grants, rebates, and direct spending that will flow through more than a dozen federal agencies, with the lion’s share handled by the U.S. Treasury.
This year’s General Session will include experts who will help demystify the types of projects that can receive funding under the IRA and that are most relevant to NABL members and our clients. You’ll learn the ways in which the IRA is particularly lenient and beneficial for small projects in particular. You’ll also learn that one of the IRA’s goals is to help communities historically reliant on coal, oil, or natural gas. During a time when interest rates and project costs are keeping many clients from financing projects, the General Session offers an opportunity to learn about the ways in which the IRA can provide cash to help fund critical capital projects.
