Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) Calculators, databases, and lists of tax credits:
 

Rewiring America offers a Savings Calculator for Homeowners and Renters.

EnergyStar also offers a tool for looking up tax credits and energy efficiency incentives. This tool provides information by specific pieces of equipment.
