Arizona Advances in Renewable Energy with Federal Investments

Arizona is on the frontline for up-and-coming solutions to address climate change thanks to federal investments for renewable energy.

Since 2021, Arizona has received $10.5 billion of investments and incentives into clean energy, through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) and Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).

“We are building and deploying solar panels, batteries and other renewable energy technology that’s going to help reduce emissions and slow climate change,” Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) said.

The state senator also noted that the OOR will soon distribute about $153 million in home energy rebates for energy efficient purchases for low to medium households and $156 million in Solar for All grants and loans for residential deployment.

Solar for All is a program through the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund under the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that will allow nearly over 900,000 low-income households to benefit from solar energy.

The state of Arizona was announced as one of 60 recipients of the grant funding in April.
