Electrify Everything – and Save with the Inflation Reduction Act
Steve Miller and Pat Miller
In late 2021-2022, Congress passed 3 groundbreaking Acts to address the destructive effects of climate change: bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, CHIPS and Science Act, and Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). They will discuss the benefits to consumers of investing in electric clean energy home appliances, solar and electric vehicles. They will highlight their own journey and that of UUCMC toward clean energy and cost savings.
Steve and Pat Miller, retired engineers from the former Bell Labs, are chairs of the UUCMC Climate Action Team. They are long-time environmental advocates who became focused on climate activism after attending Climate Reality Training in 2017 led by founder Al Gore. Active in several environmental groups, they founded NJ 50×30 Building Electrification, which educates and advocates for a transition of building space heating and appliances to clean electricity.
