Our 179D Process
We have designed our process to give our clients confidence in their 179D tax deduction. The requirements needed to qualify your building for a 179D tax deduction are confusing enough. Our process brings clarity and peace of mind.
The first part of our process is a complimentary feasibility study. At no charge, we will evaluate all of your buildings that contain an energy efficient system to determine their potential of qualifying for a 179D tax deduction. In order to complete the feasibility study, Blue Energy Group requires some data on the building and the energy efficient system such as the area, lighting information, and/or mechanical schedule. Our feasibility studies are usually completed within 48 hours of receiving that information.
An accurate and favorable feasibility study gives our clients confidence and assurance to move forward with the certification process. Once a contract is signed with Blue Energy Group and the pertinent building information is delivered to us, we begin the energy study of the building. The energy study generally involves creating an energy model of the building to determine the reduction of the energy and power costs as compared to the ASHRAE 90.1-2001 or ASHRAE 90.1-2007 baseline building. Once the savings are known, a site visit to the building will be completed to verify the information that was used to create the energy model. Upon completion of the site visit, the building will be certified according to the IRS guidelines. The final report and certification is then delivered to the client.
The Blue Energy Group certification process carefully follows all IRS and NREL guidelines so that our clients can be sure that they are receiving an accurate building certification.
