Support the IRA Rebates for Wisconsinites NOW

The Inflation Reduction Act is largest investment in addressing climate change this nation has ever seen, and for Wisconsinites one of the major ways it will help is through residential home improvement rebates and tax credits to upgrade our homes. Right now, $74.9 million in residential rebates - between $2,000-$8,000 per home, known as theĀ HOMES rebates - should be available to all homeowners who have had an energy assessment. It is vital that residents have the chance to sign up for these funds this year, not down the line. However, Wisconsin's 3 Public Service Commissioners must formally approve making the HOMEs rebates "retroactive" to this year, otherwise the rebates may not arrive in Wisconsin until the tail end of the 2024.

Furthermore, the Commissioners are also weighing in on whether to extend additional rebates to moderate income families, to increase them to 100% of project cost up to $10,000. This would ensure that far more homeowners who tend to live in homes that could benefit the most from insulating & sealing air leaks can easily sign up.

Please add your name to our collective public comment by April 15th asking that...

1. IRA $2,000-$8,000 rebates per home be "retroactive" for all energy efficiency work done in 2024 that follows an approved energy assessment

2. Rebates be made even more available to moderate income homeowners, up to $10,000, for families of four that earn under $80,000 (<80% area median income)

...and be sure to share with others so Wisconsin policymakers can hear from many people about why we need to create jobs, cut utility bills and slash carbon emissions now!

    Saving energy is more important than ever:

    1. We must stop polluting our environment with coal emissions & combustibles.

    2. WE Energies increased consumer cost by 11% for the past 2 years. They have the gall to seek another increase this year.

    They serve their shareholder’s at the expense of us customers.

    This additional support for low-income households will go a long way towards reducing greenhouse emissions at scale, as well as increasing the health of so many individual homes.
