Inclusiv, treasury, and DOE webinar: Help CU members save on energy (tax credits & rebates)

NEW YORK, NY (January 31, 2024) — Tuesday, February 6,
2021:00-2:00 pm ET

Please join Inclusiv, in partnership with the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), to learn how credit unions can support their members to save energy, maximize cost savings, and improve the comfort of their homes.

Billions of dollars in federal rebates and tax credits are available to help lower the costs of consumer electric vehicles, solar, and home energy projects.

Determining how to connect members to the appropriate incentives can be time consuming. This webinar will discuss the types of energy projects that may qualify for financial incentives, and how credit union members can access these financial incentives.

 

If you are not able to attend live, please feel free to register to receive the information after the event.
