Maximizing IRA Funding to Improve Campus Facilities and Impact Students

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) introduced a new incentive structure that has made clean energy projects more appealing than ever to higher ed institutions.

Higher ed leaders may now be wondering how best to take advantage of this historic opportunity to fund their campus development or renewal strategies.
