Many utility companies currently offer rebates when buildings invest in energy projects. This is to incentivize companies to reduce their carbon footprint.
Why It Matters
Energy efficiency is still a relatively new focus for the real estate industry. Right now, only the leading companies have a sustainability focus, so utility companies are trying to get everyone else to hop on board. It’s important to take advantage of these opportunities now, because in five years when energy efficiency is the norm these rebates will no longer exist.
