alliantgroup Director of Energy Credits and Incentives Andy Gerstenhaber and National Director Valerie Ward will be hosting a free webinar entitled “Contractors: Benefits for Working on Government Buildings” November 1 at 12:00 pm CT.

Gerstenhaber and Ward will discuss how businesses can take advantage of the Section 179D deduction by making HVAC, interior lighting or envelope improvements to government-owned buildings such as K-12 schools, universities, hospitals, stadiums, offices, and correctional facilities. For renovations and retrofits that improve energy-efficiency, business owners can receive a deduction of up to $1.80 per square foot.

“The 179D deduction presents a powerful opportunity for business owners, and any business that has done prior work to a government-owned building such as a public school should immediately find out if they qualify,” said alliantgroup CEO Dhaval Jadav. “Andy and Valerie have helped businesses claim this deduction for years, and I am so excited they have the opportunity to share their valuable insights with contractors and construction business owners.”
