The Inflation Reduction Act: Seizing Opportunities for Growth

Updated: Apr 26

S.I. Container Builds is closely following the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and how the provisions within the law are being implemented in the construction sector. Builders & developers are poised to benefit significantly from the opportunities presented by the law. Here's how we can leverage the legislation to thrive:
  • Tax Incentives for Energy-Efficient Homes: The IRA offers tax incentives for constructing energy-efficient homes, aiming to reduce carbon emissions by 40% for residential structures. Builders & Developers can capitalize on these incentives by incorporating energy-efficient features into their designs, attracting environmentally-conscious buyers while reducing long-term energy costs

  • Expansion of Tax Credits: The IRA extends and enhances existing tax credits, such as the New Energy Efficient Home Credit (45L), providing builders with opportunities to claim credits for constructing, reconstructing, or rehabilitating energy-efficient homes. For example, if builders adhere to the ENERGY STAR Multifamily New Construction Program, they may be able to receive up to $5,000 per dwelling unit in credits, or up to $500,000 for a 100-unit development overall

  • Cost Reduction Through Deductions: Builders can also benefit from tax deductions for installing qualifying energy systems in commercial buildings, potentially up to $1.88 per square foot

  • Enhanced Competitiveness: By embracing energy-efficient construction practices encouraged by the IRA, builders & developers can differentiate themselves in the market, attract environmentally-conscious buyers, and enhance their reputation as leaders in sustainable development

The IRA tax credits and rebates can help you afford to build green!
