The Inflation Reduction Act: How It Can Benefit Faith Communities
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) changes the landscape of what’s possible for faith communities when it comes to solar and energy efficiency. For example, did you know that this new law now makes it possible for nonprofit organizations to receive a direct payment from the federal government that equals 30% of a solar installation’s cost? Yet, there is much about the law and how it can benefit faith communities that requires careful attention and navigation. Moreover, there can be an alphabet soup of technical and financial jargon that one must confront when it comes to understanding PPAs, SRECs, ITCs, and more. Also, how is a faith community to discern what is the best way to finance solar or energy efficiency upgrades? For this webinar, we will sort through what faith communities need to know. Our featured panelists will be:

-Jerome L. Garciano, Esq., a LEED Accredited Professional and author of the Green Tax Incentive Compendium

-Rebecca Perera, Director of Lending for the United Church of Christ Cornerstone Fund
