Inflation Reduction Act

The Federal Inflation Reduction Act's (IRA) Investment in Clean Energy and Climate Action

In August of 2022, the Federal Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) was signed into law, authorizing many new programs, tax credits, and rebates designed to help households, businesses, and local governments across the country save money, lower energy usage, and reduce climate pollution. The DEP Energy Programs Office (EPO) will be supporting the development of several of these programs. This page provides an overview of those programs, rebates, and tax credits.

What’s New

  • On March 1st, 2024 DEP submitted Pennsylvania’s Priority Climate Action Plan (PCAP) to the EPA to highlight nine key actions to reduce statewide greenhouse gas emissions. The full plan is available here. This PCAP is a prerequisite to the Commonwealth and other entities in the Commonwealth applying for a share of the $4.6 Billion available from the EPA. If you are a local government or municipality that is submitting an implementation grant, please ensure that it is covered under the measures in the PCAP.
