Santa came early last year when the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the IRS launched the “Direct/Elective” Pay Pre-Filing Tool, which enables nonprofits, including rural electric cooperative utilities, municipal governments, and other qualifying organizations to “pre-file” for solar and other clean energy tax credits. This game-changing new policy was a major topic of conversation at the Roadshow, so we wanted to share a few resources to help you go after the value of these tax credits.

Depending on where you are located, you could receive up to 60% of the cost of your solar, energy storage, and other applicable projects back from the IRS. Check out the video of Laurel Blatchford, Chief Implementation Officer for the Inflation Reduction Act at the U.S. Department of the Treasury (link below), and sign up for next month’s Rural Renaissance Webinar about how our partner, Pastor Billy Humphrey, is using “Direct Pay” on the Community Resilience Hub under construction at City of Refuge, Baltimore.

Churches and other communities of faith in your hometown can follow his lead too, so please share the registration link with anyone in your community who might want to tune in.
