For many property owners and developers, the decision to make energy efficient property updates may be negatively influenced by the financial investment needed to do so. Thankfully, there are many rebate programs available for multifamily and commercial properties that are looking to increase their energy efficiency and reduce operating costs! Is your organization aware of the potential savings available?
The Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE) website makes it easy to search for energy efficient rebates and offers both local and statewide loan and grant information. The funding listed on the website can be applied to energy efficient boilers, heat pumps, lighting, ventilation systems, building insulation, and more! Many of the available rebates are also open to project-specific proposals relating to energy efficiency.
EnergyStar also offers a free rebate service on their website that allows property owners and developers to search for potential discounts. Tax exemptions and other credits for lighting equipment, insulation, air conditioners, and heating devices are just a few of the choices available to research on the website.
The U.S. Department of Energy also offers some excellent tax incentives and rebates on their EnergySaver.gov website. Simply navigate to the bottom of the page, select your state, and check out the current tax credits and rebates available! EnergySaver.gov also allows you to filter searches between residential and commercial results, which can help to streamline search results.
Be sure to visit local government and conservation group websites for even more localized rebates!
