The Recovery Act (USA)

Many of the credit tax and other energy incentives in USA are or will be covered by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, signed into law by President Obama on 2009. It involves an unprecedented public investment, and part of which aims to enhance energy independence and energy improvement and efficiency.
