SETO recently hosted a webinar: “Reaching for the Solar Future: How the Inflation Reduction Act Impacts Solar Deployment and Expands Manufacturing,” about the impact of the IRA on the future of solar deployment and manufacturing. Participants had lots of questions, and SETO experts assembled answers, which can be found in the webinar’s Q&A section. Check these out or watch the recording to learn more!
