Residents

EGLE promotes affordable, reliable, secure and environmentally-sound energy solutions for Michiganders and encourages residential energy waste reduction. The residential sector encompasses nearly 30% of Michigan's total energy consumption. As such, it is vital for households to adopt cleaner, more efficient energy practices. Below are some financial and technical resources that can help residents improve their energy footprint without breaking the bank.

Financial Assistance Programs

Federal Programs

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) has approved several new tax credits and rebates to help residents with home weatherization, energy efficiency upgrades, rooftop solar installations, and even the purchase of electric vehicles.

The White House's Clean Energy for All: Tax Credits and Rebates for Families webpage summarizes these incentives. The IRA tax credits can be seized according to the guidance on the Internal Revenue Service's Inflation Reduction Act webpage.

The Home Energy Rebate Programs will be administered by EGLE and made available to apply for in late 2023.

State and Local Programs

There are a variety of State, non-profit, and utility programs that residents can use to help reduce home energy waste and costs.
