SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Stem (NYSE: STEM), a global leader in artificial intelligence (AI)-driven energy software and services, issued a statement today from Chief Executive Officer John Carrington on the signing of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) by President Biden expected in the coming days.

“At Stem and AlsoEnergy, we view the investments in clean energy within the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) as transformational for our country, the energy industry, and our company as we continue to accelerate the clean energy transition,” said John Carrington, CEO of Stem. “For customers deploying energy storage and solar, the most significant parts of the bill are tax credits for clean electricity investment and production. We anticipate that these incentives will increase investment certainty and make adoption more affordable in existing and new energy markets.”

As part of IRA, the following incentives will be in place for 10 years and may be extended until power sector emissions fall by 75%.

  • Standalone Storage Investment Tax Credit (ITC): New tax credit of 30% for stand-alone battery storage projects. Previously, tax credits were limited to storage projects that were attached to solar. IRA also provides additional credits when projects meet requirements such as domestic content, citing in “energy communities”, and prevailing wage and apprenticeship provisions.
  • Solar Production Tax Credit (PTC): Extends the current solar PTC framework for facilities that begin construction prior to January 1, 2025, and sets requirements for additional qualifying credits.

To help developers, owners, and EPCs plan for IRA’s passage, Stem’s clean energy and policy experts are hosting a webinar, “What the Inflation Reduction Act Means for Your Clean Energy Project,” on Wednesday, August 17, 2022. Register here.
