Biden Administration Expands Tax Credits: What This Means for You

Published on

The Biden administration recently announced a significant expansion of federal tax credits for clean energy projects, broadening the scope beyond traditional wind and solar power. This move is a part of the administration's ongoing commitment to bolster the renewable energy sector and accelerate the transition to a more sustainable energy future. Here’s what this means for property owners and businesses involved in energy procurement.

Diversification of Renewable Energy Incentives

The new tax credits now extend to a wider array of renewable energy sources, including:

  • Geothermal Energy: Utilizing the Earth's internal heat to generate power, geothermal energy is now more financially attractive for new projects.
  • Hydropower: Small-scale hydroelectric projects can benefit from these expanded tax credits, encouraging the development of more localized energy solutions.
  • Battery Storage: Energy storage systems, critical for balancing supply and demand in renewable energy grids, are also eligible, making it easier to store energy generated from various renewable sources.

This diversification of incentives aims to create a more robust and resilient renewable energy infrastructure across the United States.

Benefits for Business Owners

  1. Enhanced ROI on Renewable Projects: By taking advantage of these tax credits, CRE owners can significantly reduce the upfront costs of installing renewable energy systems, leading to improved returns on investment.

  2. Increased Property Value: Properties equipped with advanced renewable energy solutions and energy storage systems are more attractive to tenants, potentially leading to higher occupancy rates and rental incomes.
