HB 77 would have established a tax credit for consumers and for businesses who installed a storage system for electricity generated by renewable resources. The bill established a cap for the amount of the tax credit, the aggregate amount of tax credits per year, and would have expired at the end of 2024. This bill, if passed, would have incentivized the development of electricity storage technologies and helped to expand the use of renewable resources for energy production.


HB 77 died in the House Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Committee.
