Retrofits

Commerical Retrofits

Almost half of the energy consumed in the United States goes to use in commercial real estate. Since it costs less to use less energy than does to produce more power, government programs are financially motivating businesses to use less energy. This means business owners can upgrade their energy consuming systems with significant financial assistance from government and energy providers.

Most energy providers offer either a set amount of money for each device removed or replaced, or custom incentives at a rate of 30-50ยข per kilowatt of energy removed from the system. In many cases businesses are eligible for some combination of both. These energy provider incentives usually pay for 20-30% of the total cost of the project, but in many cases the energy rebates and incentives will pay for a larger portion. It is important that a professional review the rebate options to ensure the greatest savings.

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct) created additional incentives though tax savings for building owners and tenants based on the use of energy efficient improvements. Section 179D offers a maximum potential tax deduction of $1.80/square foot of affected space. If your company occupies 50k square foot. of space you could get a refund of up to $30,000 for a lighting upgrade alone, and up to $90,000 for a total building upgrade.
