IAQRadio: Peter Crosa, David Drinard, John Lapotaire, Ken Larsen, David Popper, Ken Siders – A Post Hurricane Eta Report from the Sunshine State: Perspectives from the Trenches

This week, in an IAQradio+ tradition, we will be having a classic round table format podcast in the open mic “Around the Horn” style with an all star panel of Floridians. Hurricane Eta plagued almost every major region of the Sunshine state for over a week with heavy rain, strong winds and power outages. Severe flooding and wind damage statewide has created a need for mitigation, roof cover-ups, temporary power requirements and a need for restoration and IAQ remedial services statewide. As in past hurricane seasons, these kinds of needs can often bring out the opportunists and national scammers who descend on ravaged regions to take advantage of the vulnerable.

Radio Joe and the Z-man this week with IAQradio+ field reporter, the Restoration Global Watchdog will get feedback from IAQ and Restoration professionals based around the sunshine state, who will report on what is happening on the ground in their region of Florida. Please join Joe, Cliff and Pete calling in from his home base in Southwest Florida’s gulf coast, this week for a lively round table panel in the open mic tradition of IAQradio+!

Can anyone refer me to information on current tax credits for solar and geothermal for a 10,000 sf commercial building?
I am also interested in case studies to show the ROI on the investment.
