Save the Date: Home Energy Rebates Public Input Session - Update

Dear Stakeholder,

The Department of Energy Resources (DOER) has scheduled a public input session for the Home Efficiency and Electrification Rebate Programs through the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). This law included funding opportunities for states to implement two energy efficiency rebate programs:  Home Efficiency Rebates (Sections 50121) and Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates (Section 50122). The funding for these programs will be awarded through the State Energy Offices, such as DOER.

DOER plans to submit an application for both programs this spring. DOER anticipates receiving $73,233,910 and $72,809,130 for each program, respectively. DOER aims to deploy HER and HEAR in such a way as to enhance equitable outcomes while building upon the Commonwealth’s existing efforts in building energy efficiency and electrification. In anticipation of our application, DOER will hold a public input session to present a straw proposal for program design and solicit community input on its proposed deployment plans.

Energy Rebates Public Input Session
Monday, March 18 at 1-2 pm

Please register for the Public Input Session here. The Public Input Session will be recorded and available on our website after the 18th. The agenda for the Input Session will include an overview of the straw proposal and time for verbal public comment. The straw proposal will be posted on our website and circulated to this distribution list before the Public Input Session for review.

In addition to verbal comments during the meeting, DOER appreciates the submission of written comments no later than Monday March 25, 2024 to:

Christina Moroney-Ebarb Please include "Energy Rebates" in the subject line of your email. All comments will be posted publicly.

The input from this public session and the written public comment will inform the design of DOER’s rebate program application. In addition, to solicit input on the program design, DOER anticipates there will be future opportunities for engagement and community feedback throughout the duration of the DOER rebate program.
