Kinetic Communities Applauds the Biden Administration on its Guidance on the Low-Income Communities Bonus Credit Program
Guidance on Low Income Communities Bonus Program
Kinetic Communities Consulting (KC3) commends the Biden Administration for the recently released Low-Income Solar Credits in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which would allocate tax credits for clean energy facilities placed in low-income communities.
We thank the Department of Treasury and Department of Energy for their work to prioritize the needs and futures of low-income climate-burdened communities across the country. For far too long environmental justice communities - low-income Black and brown neighborhoods that have borne the brunt of the climate crisis - have experienced historic divestment resulting in crumbling infrastructure and a significantly reduced quality of life. The IRA Low-Income Solar Credits directly address this issue by prioritizing equity in program eligibility criteria and capacity allocation standards, ensuring those most in need are first in line.
