How the New Climate Bill May Affect You

Updated: Aug 24, 2022


Together with robust state/local incentives available in many markets in the Northeast, geothermal heating and cooling systems will now have both the lowest upfront cost and the lowest ongoing cost of any heating and cooling option for commercial, institutional, and multi-family buildings - while utilizing zero greenhouse gas-emitting fossil fuels!

Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, the $369 billion climate legislation that was signed into law yesterday by President Biden, has an extremely robust set of financial incentives that will now benefit geothermal heating and cooling projects in the built environment. These provisions are going to make installing and incorporating geothermal systems into your buildings extremely financially attractive.

  • Up to 40% tax credit for the cost of both the ground loop, heat pumps and related HVAC equipment

  • Tax credits can easily be converted into cash
