The League of Women Voters and UUCNC’s Green Sanctuary Team will host this presentation about the Inflation Reduction Act. The presentation will be given by members of People United for Sustainable Housing (PUSH Green), a non-profit, community-based energy efficiency and clean energy program serving Allegany, Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, and Niagara counties.
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is a large legislative bill signed into law last year by President Biden. The law is aimed at fighting inflation, lowering the deficit, reducing the price of prescription drugs for seniors, and reducing the country’s carbon emissions. The bill includes nearly 11 billion dollars to build electrification infrastructure in rural America with clean, affordable, reliable energy and to enhance the quality of life in rural communities. The Inflation Reduction Act also invests in America’s clean energy future. IRA is lowering energy costs, bringing opportunity to communities across America and tackling the climate crisis through investments in agriculture, forest restoration, and rural communities.
PUSH Green is funded by The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). This presentation by PUSH will give a basic overview of the IRA and how it can help both individuals and businesses move towards more efficient use of energy and reduce burning of fossil fuels.
For those attending in person, limited parking is available in the back parking lot, with several handicapped parking spaces located directly behind the garage. To attend via Zoom, please register in advance at this link: https://tinyurl.com/InflationReductionPresentation
