It’s no surprise that there are a lot of incentives out there for folks that are doing any remodeling that help encourage green strategies – everything from tax credits, tax deductions, rebates, grants, municipal incentives, and more! The USGBC Illinois chapter has been working on pulling much of this information together into an educational seminar that will be held Tuesday, Oct 19 in Chicago’s north suburbs. If you are a builder, designer or remodeler looking to capitalize on green building and better serve your clients, this is the event for you.
Title: Leveraging Residential Incentives to Green Your Bottom Line
Date: 19 October 2010, Tuesday
Time: 06:00 PM to 08:00 PM
Location: Ryerson Welcome Center, 21950 N. Riverwoods Rd., Riverwoods, IL [view map]
Please join USGBC-Illinois Chapter’s North/Northwest Suburban Branch, the Residential Green Building Committee and the Home Builder’s Association of Greater Chicago for: Leveraging Residential Incentives to Green Your Bottom Line.
This program will focus on the many available ways to defray the cost of building or remodeling a green residence. We will present available tax credits, tax deductions, utility rebates available for green residences. In addition, we will review pending legislation both at the State and Federal level that creates green building incentives. There will be a special focus and case-study on building green affordable housing. This event is co-sponsored with the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago, whose Members are eligible to attend at the discounted Member rate. Residential design, development and building professionals are the primary audience for this program. Home owners may also be interested in available incentives.
