Tax Incentives

Below are links to information regarding energy-related tax incentives:

The U.S. Energy Department's website has a Tax Incentive Information Center for fuel efficient vehicles.

The Alliance to Save Energy website has a "Energy Efficiency Home and Vehicle Tax Credits" page with information.​​​​​​​​​​

Performance Contracting

This marketing program provides the latest information available to procure and finance large capital energy improvement projects for the state's public facilities, focusing on public agencies such as K-12 schools, universities, community colleges, state agencies and local governments.

The division, in joint membership with the Energy Services Coalition, serves as an advocate for introducing energy performance contracting agreements (guaranteed energy and cost-savings contracts) as a means to reduce energy consumption and cost for all governmental units in the state. All project costs, including financing, are covered by the energy and cost savings achieved by the installation of the energy efficient improvements such as lighting, HVAC equipment, controls and more.
