ICAST has created a document in response to federal and state agencies seeking to expend their Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) funding on residential markets, especially income-qualified residents.
Get a quick estimate of the benefits potentially available through the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) for your multifamily affordable housing to go green.
ICAST has created a Resource Guide meant to help MF owners and managers, policymakers, regulators, utilities, energy efficiency program implementers, and affordable housing stakeholders overcome the barriers to deploying VHE technologies in MF properties.
The combination of Solar Investment Tax Credits (ITC), Solar For All (SFA), and Rural Utilities Service (RUS) funding will make your solar/BESS project virtually free.
This Resource Guide is the culmination of a multi-year effort to develop a sustainable and scalable approach for the deployment of solar photovoltaic (PV) and potentially solar PV-plus-energy storage solutions for the benefit of the low-income (LI) residents of multifamily affordable housing (MFAH).
