We like to break (the tax credits) down by industries and audiences...On the industry side, we have energy efficiency, energy generation, manufacturing, vehicles, fuels, and carbon capture. Now, overlaying all of those are a handful of cross crosscutting bonuses and requirements that can greatly affect, in many cases, increase the amount of the underlying tax credit within those industry driven tax credits. And then we have the audiences who are applicable to these tax credits. Now, the beauty of the IRA is that it is so wide sweeping that almost everybody is eligible for some type of tax credit within the law.” Rachel McLeery on Electric Ladies Podcast

  • The impact of these bills on the economy – in energy, climate, sustainability, infrastructure, electric vehicles.

You have the ambition, you have the drive, you know how to do it, you have the confidence. But confidence and fearlessness, to me they are two very different things. And in order to take that step, you have to be able to take some risks and you have to assume space that you haven't before.
