The projects, which will be funded by the Inflation Reduction Act, are designed to increase electric heat pump manufacturing at 15 sites across America.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has selected nine projects to receive a collective $169 million in funding. The projects, which will be funded by the Inflation Reduction Act, are designed to increase electric heat pump manufacturing at 15 sites across America. According to the DOE, the selected projects promised to help improve air quality, help families and businesses save money on their energy bills, and reduce energy resilience on foreign nations. The aforementioned projects are expected to generate over 1,700 new jobs.  

In a recent quote, U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm said, “Getting more American-made electric heat pumps on the market will help families and businesses save money with efficient heating and cooling technology. Thanks to President Biden’s Investing in America agenda, these investments will create thousands of high-quality, good-paying manufacturing jobs and strengthen America’s energy supply chain, while creating healthier indoor spaces through home-grown clean energy technologies.”
