Savings through the IRA
Through the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA), a plethora of home energy efficiency upgrades now qualify for rebates and tax credits! There will be $4.3 billion in funding for the State Energy Offices to distribute to homeowners to make their homes more energy efficient. The allowance applies to energy retrofits, new appliances, solar and battery storage systems, and EV charging!

High-Efficiency Electric Home Rebate Act
HEEHRA is a voluntary program that covers 100% of electrification project costs up to $14,000 for low-income households and 50% of project costs for moderate-income households. Formerly known as the Zero-Emissions Homes Act (ZEHA), the HEEHRA qualifies electrification projects such as heat pumps for HVAC and water heating, electric stoves and cooktops, upgrading electric panels, and insulation and ventilation. The program applies to purchasing equipment and installation costs, acting as off-the-top discounts.
State and County incentives
Most utilities today offer incentives to help you reduce your consumption and save money. When your home or commercial property uses less gas, electricity, or water, your utility benefits because they need to procure less of these valuable natural resources, each utility is different.
Many offer rebates when switching to a ductless heat pump or a ducted heat pump, ductless water heater, more efficient furnace, or other heat sources. Check with your utility to find out what they offer, and then contact Northwest Electric and Solar for a bid or estimate on getting the electrical work done safely, by the code, and on time.
