The Senate has introduced a bill that would establish a Building Star program to provide incentives to commercial buildings for energy efficient installations.
According to the bill sponsor, “Buildings represent 40 percent of the energy used in the United States, and many have old equipment that waste energy and money”.
In addition to rebates to reduce the cost of energy-saving measures, “Building Star” would also extend low-interest financing options to small businesses and other building owners.
Items that are proposed to be covered by the Building Star incentives include:
Building Envelope Insulation
Windows, Window Films, and Doors
HVAC Equipment, Water Heaters, and Boilers
Duct Testing and Sealing
Variable Speed Motors
Interior and Exterior Lighting
Building Energy Audits, Commissioning, Tune-Ups, and Training
Energy Management and Monitoring Systems
Improving energy efficiency is one of the most constructive and cost-effective ways to address the challenges of escalating energy prices, energy security, air pollution, and global climate change.
