During the live webinar, an expert panel will discuss how the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct) tax deduction for energy efficiency works and why it was recently extended. The presentation will also address which industrial lighting targets can help businesses claim an immediate tax deduction of up to $1.80 per square foot; what LED lighting and control systems garner the biggest incentives for manufacturing, cold storage, and warehouse facilities; and how to use previous projects to pay for new ones, or finance a project out of its energy savings.
