Designer defined as “architect, engineer, contractor, environmental consultant or energy services provider”
Tax Deduction based upon energy savings and affected square footage up to $1.80/sf
$0.60/sf each for Lighting Systems, HVAC Systems and Building Envelope
Proposed Legislation increases credit to $1.00/sf/system</li></li></ul><li>8<br />Building Energy AuditsProgress Energy/MAE Programs<br /><ul><li>Energy Management Staff has performed Energy Audits to evaluate energy use and applicability to Progress Energy’s Energy Efficiency for Business Program

Threshold for savings is to reduce energy used by 15 million BTUs for each $1,000 spent
Facilities Division prioritized a list of four projects:
Retro Commissioning and Electrical Equipment at the Flex Lab Building
Replace two 130 ton chillers at Research Building II
NCSU has been awarded $778 k to complete the projects by Dec 2011.</li></li></ul><li>13<br />Student Sustainability Attitude Survey -Findings and Results<br /><ul><li> 85% of the student sample think that it is important for NC State to be a leader in sustainability and the environment.
