In an effort to help Rhode Islanders save money and the environment, U.S. Senator Jack Reed teamed up with Governor Dan McKee and the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources (OER) to launch the first state-specific calculator from Rewiring America. The new calculator helps homeowners and renters find out how much they can save by taking advantage of new electrification incentives.
The calculator is a creation of Rewiring America, the leading electrification nonprofit, focused on electrifying homes, businesses, and communities. The new tool will help Rhode Islanders quickly estimate how much they can save on energy efficient upgrades by leveraging green energy incentives and tax credits created by the historic Inflation Reduction Act (P.L. 117-169) in addition to other incentives on the state and local level.
To use the calculator, Rhode Islanders will only need to input a few details about their households to get personalized estimates about how much they can save on efficient electric appliances and energy-saving technologies. Rewiring America estimates that American households can receive $10,600 on average in federal incentives to help with electrification which in turn can save households an average of $1,800 per year on energy bills.
