Energy Retrofit Group Web Site Links Government Tax Incentives for Large Buildings

Energy Retrofit Group (ERG), the subsidiary of 40-year-old, award-winning Adache Group Architects, Inc., has announced the creation of their new energy conservation web site: www.energy-rg.com.

“Our site describes how large commercial buildings, such as schools, hotels, retail malls, supermarket chains, and corporate office headquarters, can maximize their energy efficiency, especially interior lighting, heating and cooling, and hot water systems by retrofitting,” says Dan Adache, chairman of the board.

Adache points out that the new site contains important information and offers links to government programs and tax incentives for energy retrofitting. For example, the IRS has designated tax deductions for individuals or corporate building owners of up to $1.80 per square foot of building area, depending upon the level of successful energy savings attained. There are also links to the U.S. Department of Energy’s loan guarantee programs for energy retrofits, as well as the Department of Treasury’s renewable energy grants for solar, wind and geothermal installations.

The site describes ERG commercial building client services in its four phases: evaluation, design and engineering, implementation, and ongoing monitoring. Through the most up-to-date engineering technology, ERG demonstrates a proven applied “Energy Savings Methodology” designed to save building owners money, reduce their overhead expenses and create increased property value.

Named as one of the top 10 design firms in America by Hotel Design Magazine, Adache is a respected company in the field of hospitality and resort architecture and interior design. Adache Group Architects and Energy Retrofit Group are based in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., with a satellite office in Pensacola, Fla.
