Leveraging opportunities within the Inflation Reduction Act and Climate and Equitable Jobs Act in the state of Illinois

The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) is the largest clean energy initiative in U.S. history. Unique aspects such as the expansion of section 45 and section 48 tax credit programs and the “transferability” clause mean there are significant opportunities for manufacturers. For the first time, manufacturers can obtain tax credits that can be transferred to an unrelated party for qualifying clean energy or efficiency projects, if the credits are unable to be used internally. These tax credits can total as much as 50% or more of the qualifying project costs.

The Climate and Equitable Jobs Act (CEJA) is comprehensive energy legislation that incentivizes renewable energy development, accelerates electric vehicle (EV) adoption, and expands charging station infrastructure, creates statewide clean energy workforce training programs to ensure our workforce is prepared for the jobs of the future; and equitably supports communities facing energy transitions.

Join the Illinois Manufacturing Excellence Center, Illinois Manufacturers Association, and Baker Tilly to learn more about the game-changing opportunities for Illinois manufacturers within the IRA and CEJA.
