Bipartisan legislation was announced in the House and Senate that will help homeowners lower their energy bills through energy efficiency improvements.

A coalition of businesses, trade associations, and advocacy groups including the Alliance to Save Energy, Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute, and Natural Resources Defense Council called on Congress to quickly pass bipartisan legislation announced Wednesday to modernize and reinstate expired tax incentives that help homeowners lower their energy bills through energy efficiency improvements.

By encouraging high-efficiency new home construction and efficiency improvements for existing homes, the incentives would stimulate billions of dollars in economic activity and related job creation, particularly in the manufacturing and construction sectors such as insulation, windows, and HVAC. They also would sharply reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the residential buildings sector, which accounts for 20% of U.S. carbon emissions.
