Google Knol publishes our new article titled: Supermarkets Move Quickly to Capture Fuel Cell and LED Tax Incentives

April 22nd, 2011 by Charles

In a surprise development many supermarkets are using large tax incentives to become one of the first major building categories to reach net zero electrical consumption from the electrical grid. A building gets to net zero electrical consumption by reducing overall energy consumption and installing alternative energy measures to generate the remaining electricity that is required.

Supermarkets have historically been one of the highest energy usage building categories because in addition to normal building lighting and HVAC they require even larger amounts of electricity for refrigeration and freezer applications. Supermarkets are increasingly using LED (lighting emitting diode) lighting to reduce building energy usage and fuel cells to generate the remaining electricity that is required.

LED building lighting and fuel cells are both eligible for large tax incentives.

Google Knol publishes our new article titled: The Energy Tax Aspects of a Restructuring U.S. Mall Industry

April 22nd, 2011 by Charles

In the aftermath of a severe economic downturn and the reemergence of General Growth Properties from bankruptcy, three huge U.S. mall developers are currently marketing 40 shopping malls for sale. The three large mall sellers are Westfield Group, Simon Property Group, and General Growth Properties. Some of these malls have not had a major facilities upgrade in many years and use far more energy than modern shopping facilities. According to the Wall Street Journal, the four malls being sold by Simon Properties are, on average, 27 years old and haven’t had a major renovation in 13 years. Those four include Gulf View Square and Boynton Beach Mall in Florida, and Knoxville Center and Oak Court Mall in Tennessee. Westfield Properties is selling Downtown Plaza in Sacramento California, Solano Mall in Milford Conn, and the Westland Mall in Hialeah, Florida. Westfield intends to utilize $2 billion in proceeds for the redevelopment and renovation of its remaining properties. The Westfield Group facilities slated for upgrades include Century City in Los Angeles, Valley Fair Mall in San Jose California and Garden State Plaza in New Jersey.

April 19th, 2011 by Charles

As result of large recent natural gas finds and technology improvements, New York State has immediate access to tremendous volumes of natural gas. In fact, some commentators say that North America’s recently identified natural gas reserves make it the “Saudi Arabia” of natural gas.
