E-ZineArticles publishes our article entitled, “LED Lighting Tax Aspects of Furniture Chains”

June 24th, 2011 by Charles

The 2008 collapse of the U.S. housing market had a particularly damaging effect on the domestic furniture industry. A virtual freeze on new and existing home purchases resulted in a drastic decline in sales for furniture chains who, prior to the collapse, dominated the industry primarily by selling foreign-made furniture. The furniture industry has largely evolved into an import model where huge warehouses store the furniture that is then sold in retail show rooms. Some major brands use large, warehouse-like structures as their retail facilities. As the economy continues to improve, these companies will be able to realize significant energy cost savings and very large EPAct tax deductions by installing LED lighting in their showrooms along with energy-efficient lighting and heaters in their distribution centers.

Google Knol publishes our article entitled, “The Energy Tax Aspects of New York City’s 10,000 Building Heating Oil Conversions”

June 23rd, 2011 by Charles

By some estimates, approximately 10,000 New York City buildings will undergo a mandatory retrofit from high-emission No. 6 oil heating systems to an alternative fuel based heating system over the next 4 to 5 years. Because of the abundance of low cost natural gas, many of these building owners are selecting energy-efficient natural gas systems. This mandatory change is occurring at a time when buildings 50,000 square feet or greater are subject to New York City’s new mandatory energy reporting benchmarking law.

Many of the same buildings subject to the heating oil change also have federally banned or other energy-inefficient lighting. A large number of building owners are bundling the lighting and heating changes together and taking advantage of utility rebates, financing and tax incentives to optimize their overall economic return.

The authors of this article discuss the energy tax opportunities, new heating law requirements, benchmarking process, lighting opportunity and how to optimize the integrated results here:

Google Knol publishes our article entitled, “Washington, D.C. Energy Benchmarking Impacts Local Hotels”

June 16th, 2011 by Charles

In 2008, the city of Washington, D.C. was the first major city in the nation to mandate energy benchmarking.  In the years since then, several other cities have gained prominence as “green leaders” by creating stringent laws governing the scale and content of the energy benchmarking requirements, most notably New York1 and San Francisco.  However, we are now witnessing a bolstering of energy-efficient laws and resurgence in energy retrofits in the Washington, D.C., making the city a national energy pioneer once again.

Authors Charles Goulding and Spencer Marr examine the underlying tax implications of this resurgence here:

Energy Tax Aspects of Warehouses in the Carolinas

June 14th, 2011 by Charles

The Carolinas have long been extremely important logistics centers because of their central position on the Eastern seaboard.  In recent years, both North and South Carolina have become distribution hubs since they offer companies low costs, good roads, and close proximity to the major airport hub between Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina.  Carrying this momentum forward, many major distribution logistics companies, research facilities, and data processing centers have either recently opened very large warehouses and distribution infrastructure, or unveiled plans to do so.  Part of their logistics planning will necessarily involve a reduction in energy-related expenses.

Charles Goulding and Spencer Marr discuss the tax implications of this process here:
