Re: Letter in support of SEIA comments in response to Notice 2023-29
Dear Office of Associate Chief Counsel:
The American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) writes this letter in support of comments from the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) responding to Notice 2023-29, which provided guidance on the energy communities (EC) bonus amount under the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA). ACORE is a national nonprofit organization that unites finance, policy and technology to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy. ACORE’s membership spans renewable energy technologies and constituencies, including developers, manufacturers, top financial institutions, major corporate renewable energy buyers, grid technology providers, utilities, professional service firms, academic institutions, and allied nonprofit groups. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to provide these additional comments to the Department of Treasury, both underscoring our position on the recent special rule for energy communities as well as supporting SEIA comments below.
