Financial Rewards for Energy Efficient Design
AIABaltimore is pleased to present two distinct presentations that offer financial rewards that can benefit your current projects.
The first is BGE's Smart Energy Savers Program, which offers financial incentives to encourage commercial and industrial customers to reduce the energy consumption and demand in their facilities. Since program inception, BGE has paid out more than $70 million in incentives to customers and their Service Providers!
The second program is the 179D Energy Efficient Commercial Building Deduction presented by alliantgroup, AIA National's expert resource for Section 179D Energy Tax Deduction. The IRC Sec. 179D allows for an immediate depreciation deduction of up to $1.80 per s.f. for commercial buildings that achieve certain reductions in total energy and power costs with respect to interior lighting, HVAC, hot water systems and the building envelope. The tax savings for an AIA member can be thousands of dollars to several hundreds of thousands of dollars.
"AIA's goal in partnering with alliantgroup is to ensure that all AIA member firms are made aware of the powerful 179D incentive a deduction which can provide powerful cash infusing funds to help firms hire additional employees, competitively price jobs, and expand their practice," said Mickey Jacob, AIA President.
alliantgroup is dedicated to forging this alliance with AIA, and because of its mission to help architecture firms throughout the country, will offer a complimentary assessment to all AIA members as to whether they can qualify for the section 179D deduction.
