Energy Efficient Lighting Retrofits

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, lighting represents 40% of the average commercial building's electric bill. Responding to demand for more-efficient solutions, the lighting industry developed a wide range of energy-efficient products that can significantly reduce lighting energy costs while maintaining or potentially improving lighting quality.


The Energy Efficient Commercial Buildings Tax Deduction (CBTD) is a special financial incentive created by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and designed to reduce the initial cost of investing in energy-efficient lighting via an accelerated tax deduction. This special tax deduction allows building owners (or tenants) to write off the complete cost of upgrading a building's indoor lighting in the year the new equipment is placed in service, capped at $0.60/sq.ft. In short, with the CBTD, the cost of new lighting can be claimed in a single tax year instead of amortized over a period of years.


The CBTD expiration date has been extended twice, most recently by the Energy Independence Act of 2007 (EISA) With this extension, the CBTD can be claimed for qualifying projects completed before January 1, 2017.
