Why Act Now?

The recent Inflation Reduction Act added $1.7 billion to existing REAP funds, allowing the U.S.D.A. to increase its funding limits. Those limits are expected to decrease back to 25% in October 2024. Act now to maximize funding while you reduce operational costs, make a positive impact on the environment, and ensure your store is compliant with refrigerant hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) gas phase down requirements.
