Now more than ever: It pays to go green. The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), signed into law on Aug. 16, 2022, represents the single-largest investment by the federal government to combat climate change in U.S. history. 

Homeowners interested in high-efficiency appliances, sustainable building improvements, electric vehicles, battery storage devices, and solar panels can now benefit from the strongest federal incentives and rebates in U.S. history. But access to credits is one thing—taking advantage is another challenge entirely.

My electric bill is $290/mo

That’s precisely what we wanted to learn more about. In September of 2022, one month after the IRA was passed, we conducted a survey of 350+ solar homeowners on the new energy efficiency credits and rebates found in the IRA. The survey findings address: 

  • What energy-efficiency upgrades consumers have already invested in
  • Which of the new home energy credits interest consumers the most 
  • What factors influence consumer decisions 
  • The perceived impact of home energy-efficiency credits and investments
