Impact on your building’s health

Hundreds of millions of dollars in grants, federal tax deductions, and tax credits are available now! Take advantage of these to enhance your marketability through energy efficiency, optimize the lifecycle of your building equipment and systems, and more.

Owners + Designers with Tax Liability

Maximize benefits for your commercial projects! Get up to $5/sf tax deduction (179D) for energy-efficient systems, cutting costs by 25%. Credits may cover up to 50% of project costs. Secure 30% investment tax credits (Sec. 48) for technologies like thermal energy storage.

Tax Exempt Owners + Designers

Tax-exempt entities can transfer 179D tax deductions to project designers, and for Sec. 48 projects, the Direct Pay option acts like a financial grant, enabling the transfer of tax credits' cash value to project designers.
