PPA Signs Onto Two Industry Letters To US Congress on Liquid Heating Fuels
August 2, 2021
The PPA has signed onto two different congressional letters to Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM) regarding the Zero-Emissions Homes Act of 2021. The recently introduced bill incentivizes the purchase of new energy efficient heating appliances through federal rebates and tax credits. Unfortunately, the tax credits are limited to purchasers of new heating appliances powered by electricity while not recognizing clean renewable biodiesel used for heating which can achieve far greater reductions in greenhouse gas emissions than any alternatively powered heating appliance on the market today, including heat pumps. Links to complete versions of the letters can be found below.
