Topic: Supply Chain Woes in an IRA World
Moderator: Michael Eyman, Managing Director, Origis Services
Guest: Chris Gauldin, Vice President Supply Chain, Origis Energy
A year ago, Congress passed the Inflation Reduction Act or IRA. Among other things, the IRA offers tax incentives for building solar power plants or renewable energy plants with a high level of domestic content. In Episode 13 of Power Players by Origis®, host Michael Eyman discusses strategies and best practices to ensure the proper domestic content in a project, the benefits to industries beyond solar and renewables and potential barriers to success.
During their conversation, the power players discussed how the Inflation Reduction Act is affecting the supply chain for solar developers and operators:
- Broke down what the tax credits are in the IRA and how to achieve them for solar projects.
- Discussed best practices for deciding how and where to source materials for solar projects.
- Teased out benefits of IRA tax credits that have not been as widely discussed as new construction in renewable energy.
