Financial Incentives to go Green
While there are a number of people who choose to embrace a green lifestyle for ideological reasons, there are also fiscal reasons to consider green building. With rising utility prices throughout the country, the dollars and cents behind installing a solar hot water heater and net metered photovoltaic systems are becoming more enticing. I was browsing the net yesterday when I found this great website created by North Carolina State University called the Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy or DSIRE. The database includes information on potential tax incentives, rebate programs and loans. Check out the Hawaii page on the site for a great resource on Hawaii Incentives for Renewable Energy.
