Legislation Would Make Electrochromic Glass Eligible for Renewable Energy ITC

Monday, May 3, 2021 - 8:30am

Sens. Edward Markey, D-Massachusetts, Roger Wicker, R-Mississippi, and Michael Bennet, D-Colorado, introduced legislation to make electrochromic glass eligible for federal renewable energy investment tax credit (ITC). The Dynamic Glass Act would qualify for the ITC the glass in properties that begin construction between the enactment of the bill and Jan. 1, 2024. Electrochromic glass transitions between clear and variable tint when driving by an electric signal, which provides control over the amount of light and heat entering a building. A companion bill was introduced in the House of Representatives by Rep. Steven Horsford, D-Nevada.

Federal renewable energy legislation and policy will be among the topics at the Novogradac 2021 Spring Renewable Energy and Environmental Tax Credits Virtual Conference, May 20-21.
