"Adversity brings out either the best or worst in people. The 2020 pandemic was no
exception. America witnessed the heroic action of first line responders and the
despicable actions of rioters and looters. American examples of leadership. We at
IAQ Radio are proud to have these industry leaders as sponsors."

  • The Hope for Homes bill, currently in the Senate, will provide both immediate and long-term initiatives to save the residential energy efficiency contractor industry from hardships incurred from COVID-19. Through grants for training, residential contractors will immediately gain access to online training designed to prepare them to conduct home energy efficiency retrofits. These grants will allow contracting businesses to rehire and re-invest in their employees during the economic downturn. The Home Energy Savings Retrofit rebate program would then act as a stimulus to encourage homeowners to undertake energy retrofits of their homes and drive demand for these highly trained workers.

    This will result in the creation of local jobs. When this bill passes, it will put people back to work and afford a new group to take training and equip them with the ability to gain employment with existing companies or be their own boss and start their own company. While this pandemic has had a devastating impact on our country's employment, the Hope for Homes bill is a chance to become certified in one of the fast-growing and most essential industries.

    Green Training USA exceeds the standards to train and certify those awarded this opportunity. With the largest course catalog/certifications, and as the most respected training organization in the industry, Green Training USA is the best choice.

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.
