Allowing low-income-serving entities to take direct payment of a tax credit they would not otherwise be allowed to take in order to offset the cost of adding solar and storage, both for relief of energy burden and for resilience, could increase the amount of solar and storage on low-income single-family homes, effectively addressing a deficiency in the Inflation Reduction Act.
CEG strongly recommends that the Treasury Department and the IRS fully account for the carbon emissions associated with powering electrolysis production of hydrogen through grid electricity and that the agencies do not allow for offsetting these emissions through market-based procurement mechanisms, such as RECs and PPAs.
Extreme heat is responsible for more weather-related deaths than any other weather event. Community service providers and emergency preparedness leaders scramble each summer to ensure those at high risk – including electricity-dependent, medically vulnerable, and elderly individuals as well as those without access to in-home air conditioning – have access to cooling centers, air-conditioned locations…
Clean Energy Group has published a fact sheet answering four commonly asked questions about fuel cells – what they are, what they can be used for, drawbacks, and potential benefits.
This report examines the environmental justice and public health impacts of peaker power plants in three U.S. cities – Boston, Philadelphia, and Detroit.
