Fostering a healthier planet. And healthier businesses, too.
Alternative energy companies know it better than anyone: sustainable businesses are, by their nature, environmentally sound. The more difficult task is ensuring that they are financially sound as well. Companies in the Alternative Energy sector are often eligible for a wide range of benefits from state, and local governments, including a wide range of renewable energy tax credits and incentives. Seizing these opportunities can provide increased current cash flow, reduce tax liability, and help offset the cost of energy-efficient improvements.
