East Shore’s Earth and Climate Action Ministry Team (ECAM) wants to share this opportunity on how you might get help electrifying your home—like replace gas furnace with a heat pump or replace fossil fuel appliances—and help cool the planet. I attended a previous webinar hosted by Interfaith Power and Light, a non-profit engaging faith communities in stewardship and climate action. The speaker is from Rewiring America, a leading electrification non-profit.

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is the largest climate and clean energy investment America has ever made, with strategic incentives to make the transition to clean energy and a decarbonized life easy, financially smart, and equitable.

It created programs to help you go electric — swapping out your old, fossil-fueled appliances for new, clean electric ones — over the next ten years. The IRA’s home energy offerings include upfront discounts, tax credits, and low-cost financing that together provide a substantial pot of money for every household to electrify the machines they rely on regardless of income level.

Much of the solution to the climate crisis is just doing two things: getting all the carbon out of our electricity supply, and electrifying everything we can.

As people of faith and conscience, shifting our household energy use to efficient technologies that use renewable energy is an opportunity to help bring about climate justice based on our shared values: caring for one another and our common home.

Jamal Lewis, Director of Policy Partnerships and Equitable Electrification for Rewiring America, leads the a conversation on electrification, what it looks like, and what federal resources are available to help.

Join us to learn more about the incentives that will be available to help make your home healthier and more efficient. If you aren’t able to attend, you can still register, and we will send the recording out to everyone who registered.
