LEED® Tax Incentives and Credits for Green Buildings

LEED® is a certification program for green buildings. Key elements of the program are water conservation, energy conservation and a reduction in waste going to landfill. Federal, state and local jurisdictions are looking for ways to incentivize improved performance in these key areas. The President is working with Congress to pass comprehensive legislation to protect our nation from the serious economic and strategic risks associated with our reliance on foreign oil and the destabilizing effects of a changing climate. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act included more than $60 billion in clean energy investments intended to jump-start our economy and build the clean energy jobs of tomorrow. The Department of Energy is issuing a series of grant opportunities directly, and through state and local government, to address these areas. This OnDemand Webinar will highlight the numerous opportunities companies have to reduce the cost of investment in green buildings and energy efficiency by appropriately utilizing business incentives and tax credits.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to review the various tax incentives and credits for federal, state and utility rebates.
  • You will be able to define the impact of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
  • You will be able to discuss financing and loan programs.
  • You will be able to explain the potential impact of pending federal legislation.
