WASHINGTON, D.C. — This week, the U.S. Department of the Treasury issued new guidance on Section 6418 of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) that allows clean energy tax credits to be monetized by directly transferring the credit to a taxpaying entity.

Following is a statement from Ben Norris, vice president of regulatory affairs at the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA): 

“Expanded clean energy tax credits are supercharging America’s energy economy. The solar and storage industry appreciates Treasury’s efforts to quickly finalize complex rules around tax credit transferability, helping to provide the flexibility many clean energy companies need to move forward with billions of dollars in investments.

“These rules allow solar, storage, and manufacturing companies of all sizes to efficiently monetize various tax credits without the need for large, complex, and costly tax equity structures. The rules will strengthen existing transfer markets and add much needed liquidity for clean energy businesses as they navigate high interest rates and other economic headwinds.

“With the transferability provisions of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) fully implemented, we continue to call on the Biden administration to revise proposed Basel III rules on tax equity capitalization requirements. The U.S. solar and storage industry is expected to add over half a trillion dollars to the U.S. economy over the next decade, and the proposal as written threatens to blunt the impact of the IRA’s transferability provisions.”
