179D: Commercial Buildings (and Multifamily built under Commercial Code) Energy Efficient Deduction.
Builders that surpass the minimum energy efficient standards in new construction and renovation receive a deduction. The more energy efficient the building is, the larger the deduction the builder receives (up to $1.80 per square foot). The energy efficiency elements evaluated in order to obtain this deduction are: the building envelope, the HVAC system, and the lighting. The taxpayer must obtain a third party certification to verify the energy savings are legitimate. This tax incentive, supports and rewards building owners who want to lower operating costs and increase operating profits. https://www.irs.gov/Businesses/Small-Businesses-&-Self-Employed/Commercial-Property-Owners-and-Leaseholders-Qualify-for-Energy-Efficiency-Tax-Deduction
Solar Investment Tax Credit(ITC):
A taxpayer may claim a credit of 30% of qualified expenditures for a solar PV and solar thermal system that serves a dwelling unit located in the United States that is owned and used as a residence by the taxpayer. Expenditures with respect to the equipment are treated as made when the installation is completed. If the installation is at a new home, the "placed in service" date is the date of occupancy by the homeowner. Expenditures include labor costs for on-site preparation, assembly or original system installation, and for piping or wiring to interconnect a system to the home. If the federal tax credit exceeds tax liability, the excess amount may be carried forward to the succeeding taxable year. The maximum allowable credit, equipment requirements and other details vary by technology, as outlined below.
