IRA One Year In: The Fast-Evolving Facts of the Inflation Reduction Act

It's still early days for the Inflation Reduction Act, but projects are already applying for funds. Providing massive funding for many categories of energy projects, the IRA is especially prioritizing solar and geothermal systems, as well as sustainable designers themselves. Guidance continues to be released, and there are already successes and failures to learn from. This session will address the Investment Tax Credit, Elective Pay, Transferability, Section 179D, Depreciation, EV charging station credits, Prevailing Wage, and Apprenticeship, while leaving plenty of time for questions.

Note: This session will not address the single-family market.
