The Defense Production Act (DPA), together with the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA), creates a once-in-a-generation opportunity to reduce energy bills for everyday Americans, bolster national energy security, spur domestic clean energy manufacturing capacity, create good-paying jobs and deliver meaningful progress in the fight against climate change. If Congress and the Biden Administration leverages the DPA to its full potential, it can provide efficient American-made heat pumps to millions of homes that currently heat their homes with expensive, unreliable delivered fuels.
