Through the IRA, two new residential energy rebate programs were created: The Home Energy Performance-Based, Whole-House Rebate (HOMES) Program and the High-Efficiency Electric Home Rebate (HEEHRA) Program. HOMES is designed to provide rebates for whole-house energy efficiency upgrades, while HEEHRA is designed to provide upfront discounts on the purchase of high-energy electric home appliances.
The Department of Energy is currently planning the distribution of these two programs to states and full guidelines have not yet been released. Rebates are expected to be made available to residents in early 2024. This page will be updated as programmatic guidelines become available.
