States have flexibility in implementing federal home efficiency programs

July 27, 2023

The Energy Department has released guidelines for states to apply for billions of dollars in home efficiency funding under the Inflation Reduction Act. AnnDyl played a key role in crafting these provisions, and our CEO Kara Saul Rinaldi talked to E&E about what’s next.

"A great deal of important flexibility has been provided to the states, leaving the states with a lot still to decide, including if they will implement the programs at all. There is clear flexibility in the use of administrative funds — up to 20% of the overall allocation per state."

More than $8.5 billion in electrification and energy efficiency rebates is now one step closer to U.S. households.

The Energy Department on Thursday rolled out guidelines for states, territories and the District of Columbia to apply for portions of that Inflation Reduction Act-enacted sum, which the department says could produce 50,000 jobs and save U.S. consumers up to $1 billion in utility bills.

Energy Department Deputy Secretary David Turk announced the guidelines on a call with reporters Thursday.
