New Energy-Related Tax Credits for Consumers
There is a significant increase in the tax credits available in 2023 for things such as heat pumps and electrical panels, and energy-efficient windows and doors. The credits are available through 2032 and offer up to $3,200 per year to subsidize the cost of energy-efficient home upgrades including heating, cooling, and water heating.
Energy efficiency and conservation tax credits can be found at www.energystar.gov, www.energy.gov/save, or by contacting your tax professional.
