CEG Comments on Direct Pay Option within the Inflation Reduction Act
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.
