1) Contact us with your project information. Provide the following information: building address, impacted square footage (area affected by the energy efficient upgrade), year equipment was placed into service and the type of energy efficient equipment and building systems
2) Greenergy reviews your project and determines if it is an eligible building, approximate your tax deduction and determine your net financial benefit
3) Greenergy enters under a contract with your firm to perform the energy analysis, verification and certification in compliance with the 179d code. The service fee will be based on a fixed percentage of the deduction which is calculated based on the energy savings.
4) Any design drawings, equipment specifications, occupancy information and utility rates information should be provided for the energy analysis. An energy model will be created from a combination of design drawings and information obtained during the site visit.
5) A site visit is required to be in compliance with 179d. The site visit takes normally less then two hours and consists of accessing mechanical rooms, rooftop units, doing a lighting count, lumen level measurements, taking photographs of the site and equipment and discussing building systems with the building's maintenance engineer.
6) A certification letter is written that is a compliance with IRS 179d. The letter is signed and stamped by a professional engineer in the state that your building is located as required by the IRS. The certification letter is kept in your tax records. It does not need to be submitted to the IRS. The deduction amount which is determined by the energy savings as calculated by the energy model is added to your current year tax return on the "Other" deduction line. If there is any equipment value left over on the depreciation of the equipment after factoring the 179d deduction then the equipment continues to be depreciated straight line over the remaining time left of the 39 year recovery period with a reduced basis accounting for the 179d deduction.
