A community wide energy efficiency upgrade plan was started by a city in the Northeast for their local school system. The lighting retrofit project was designed and installed by a regional lighting contractor experienced with working in the school environment. One of the schools that received a complete lighting retrofit was an elementary school with 211,195 SF. The lighting contractor/designer worked with the city to secure the allocation for the Section 179D deduction and after project completion engaged Concord’s services to complete the Section 179D certification. The results produced a $126,717 Section 179D federal tax deduction for the lighting contractor.
