GCD’s staff possess all the required skill to assess and perform the energy models and inspections nationwide required by the IRS to obtain the 179D tax deduction.

The 179D Tax Deduction is a powerful incentive provided by the Federal Government as part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 Section 1331.

179d Commercial Tax Deduction

Under the 2005 Energy Policy Act (EPACT), a tax deduction of up to $1.80 per square foot is possible for the business owner or developer. This tax deduction specifically applies to those commercial buildings that notably reduce their interior lighting energy costs, as well as heating, cooling, and building envelope.

Buildings can partially qualify for $0.60 for HVAC, $0.60 building envelope, and $0.60 Lighting.
