  70. 71. What money is available? <ul><li>Rebates </li></ul><ul><li>Tax Credits </li></ul><ul><li>Incentives </li></ul><ul><li>Grant money </li></ul>
  71. 72. Where is it? <ul><li>City </li></ul><ul><li>County </li></ul><ul><li>State </li></ul><ul><li>Federal </li></ul><ul><li>NGO’s </li></ul>
  72. 73. DSIREUSA.ORG The Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE) is an ongoing project funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), primarily through the Office of Planning, Budget and Analysis (PBA). It is the first place to look for rebates, credits and incentives for all 50 states.
  73. 74. GRANTS.GOV is the Federal Government’s web site for posting funding opportunities from all Federal Agencies. It is a central storehouse for information on over 1,000 grant programs and provides access to approximately $500 billion in annual awards.
  74. 75. ENERGYSTAR.GOV ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. This website also offers a list of Federal Tax Credits and Rebates. For example, if you install solar panels you can receive a tax credit equal to 30% of the cost. /
  75. 76. Incentives Incentives: These are things that a city or county is willing to do to encourage green building or renovation in their jurisdiction. They will give you cash incentives or a cash offset such as waiving permitting fees. If the city or county gets homes built that are LEED certified or built to Build it Green standards as in (Encinitas CA) they will provide grant money to encourage builders to make this happen.
  76. 77. Grants Grants:A city or county gives money for a specific project and specific to a particular building, builder and renovator. Detroit offers an example of eco-friendly, low housing complexes. The builder had to write a business case for the money. An organizational expert and a grant writer put this plan for a non-profit together that resulted in subsidies for combined green, low income housing. Once this pool of money is gone it can be replaced based on experience and success. These programs have a very specific value. Once established, they are hard to eliminate but are harder to win without experienced grant winning expertise. Advice for best legal structuring and for assessing and winning a grant is essential.
  77. 78. Rebates Rebates – This is simply a discount for buying something or doing something that is defined as green. The example is Energy Star appliances or something agreed to be energy or water efficient. Changing the light bulbs, buying a washing machine and getting a $50 rebate by proving you bought it with a receipt. These plans have been around for a long time in many forms by the energy saving and green movement emphasizing these as investor friendly.
  78. 79. Tax Credits Tax Credits – These are available at an LLC, entity and personal level as an earned tax incentive by way of a discount or a refund. The magic number is $1500 for going energy efficient in a specific area such as insulation upgrades. There are much higher allowances for adopting alternative energy sources such as solar and wind (popular) or geo-thermal (less frequent) and offer uncapped tax incentives up to 30% of the capital costs of the upgrade for residential or commercial properties.
