New York Becomes First State to Launch Home Energy Rebate Program

Other states have applied for program funding under the Inflation Reduction Act.

The Department of Energy (DOE) announced that New York is the first state to launch a Home Energy Rebates program. This is a resource for low- and middle-income families interested in adding energy-efficient modifications to their homes.

The Inflation Reduction Act allocated $8.8 billion for all 50 states to develop state-level home energy programs with aid from the Energy Department. New York has received $158 million for its program, which is anticipated to reduce each home’s energy use by at least 20 percent. Massachusetts, Michigan, and Rhode Island have also applied to launch their state programs.

“From tax credits to rebates, the Biden-Harris Administration is determined to lower costs for American families and change the economics of home energy bills,” said Secretary Jennifer Granholm. “New York is leading the charge as states across the country gear up to launch their Home Energy Rebates program—delivering jobs, savings, and healthier homes.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Granholm to receive God’s wisdom as she heads the Energy Department.
  • That the president and his energy advisors would seek the Lord in their decisions and actions.
