The Inflation Reduction Act created and expanded tax credits and rebates for energy efficiency home improvements that lower energy bills and cut emissions. These incentives build upon the city of Milwaukee’s Environmental Collaboration Office’s decadelong history of providing home energy efficiency programs. For businesses such as Green Homeowners United, the Inflation Reduction Act is boosting businesses, including Kevin Kane’s, so they can create more high-paying, stable jobs in their communities.
The Inflation Reduction Act will allow a firm like ours to help thousands of local residents save money on their utility bills while cutting their carbon emissions. It will be huge for us, and it is exactly what we need to address climate change. We are excited to hire a lot more union laborers. We want to prove creating family-supporting jobs, cutting energy costs, and fighting climate change go hand in hand.
