Current Electric statement on the passage of the IRA

Current Electric applauds the signing of the Inflation Reduction Act into law. This new legislation will make it more affordable for citizens to take advantage of the benefits of solar energy.

MILWAUKEE, Wisc. -- Current Electric applauds the signing of new legislation that will make it more affordable for citizens to take advantage of the benefits of solar energy.

Now, solar customers will be able to benefit from a 30% ITC for the next 10 years.

More than 9 million new jobs will be created in the next decade thanks to this important legislation,
