High-Efficiency Electric Home Rebate Act (HEEHRA)

Funding

$4.5 billion ($225 million reserved for Tribes)

The High-Efficiency Electric Home Rebate Act (HEEHRA) provides point-of-sale consumer discounts to enable low- and moderate-income households across America to electrify their homes. Notably, households will experience HEEHRA’s point-of-sale rebates as immediate, off-the-top discounts when making qualifying electrification purchases.

Funding available to DOE in 2022; likely distributed to State Energy Offices and Tribes in 2023
