Well, this is good news for me, as I'll be moving into an all-electric home next month! Among the upgrades we'll be making are a heat pump water heater, heat pump clothes dryer, mini-split heat pumps (currently all-electric baseboard), and two EV charging stations. We'll have to plan this out so we can get full utilization of the tax credits.
