In early June 2022, President Biden authorized using the Defense Production Act to ramp up the production of heat pumps in the U.S., along with insulation and power grid components. This is certainly good news for heat pump supply chain issues! But according to this article, we also need to stimulate demand for heat pumps, such as through more customer incentives, government purchasing, and continued funding for research and development.
Love Electric aims to accelerate the adoption of heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, and other efficient electric technologies in homes and businesses across Colorado, to lower consumer energy costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and provide improved health, comfort and other benefits. Love Electric is an initiative of the Beneficial Electrification League of Colorado (BEL-CO).
