More Value per Square Foot™ for Building and Land Owners
If you own buildings or large amounts of undeveloped land, RunBrook can help you find applicable incentives and other ways to find value. Specifically:
EPACT 179D TAX DEDUCTIONS
If you are a building owner or tenant that performed build-outs, you may be able to reduce tax liability by taking advantage of section 179D of the Federal Tax Code. Section 179D applies to HVAC, lighting and envelope improvements made in commercial buildings to enhance energy efficiency. The deduction is worth anywhere from $.60 to $1.80 per building square foot. Learn more.
45L TAX DEDUCTIONS (HOMES)
If you are or were a developer or contractor for single family home projects, then the 45L Energy Efficient Home tax credit may be available to you. The credit is worth approximately $2,000 per qualifying residences completed between 2005 and 2013 that meet IRS energy savings requirements. Learn more.
fha mip reduction (energy efficiency)
If you are working on a multifamily project or market rate/affordable project (whether new construction, gut rehab, substantial renovation, or moderate renovation) that is green certified, meets specific energy-efficiency targets and meets ongoing operational energy efficiency targets, you may be able to obtain mortgage insurance premium (MIP) discounts. These discounts apply to projects with FHA commitments issued or reissued, and closed on or after April 1, 2016. Learn more.
ENERGY AUDITS AND UTILITY MONITORING
As a building owner, you may have a need for energy modeling, energy audits and utility monitoring. These can be useful for code compliance, new building and retrofit design, green certification, qualification for tax credits and utility incentives, and real-time building control. Learn more.
If you own a substantial amount of land, carbon markets can provide a new source of income if you implement practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions or sequester carbon. Due to voluntary carbon markets and developments in certain states, carbon credits may provide an option to diversify revenue and support sustainable management. Learn more.
