Financial incentives have the potential to put “distributed wind,” also called “behind-the-meter wind,” on the map, but individual businesses, industry, and agribusiness must act now to take advantage of a 100 percent first-year bonus depreciation available this year only. GBA Architects and Engineers’ Energy Studio helps guide organizations from start-up through installation of their wind project – and helps them negotiate the complexities of financial incentives to take full advantage of these unique tools that can provide much quicker return on investment.
“Harnessing wind power for the private sector has never been more attractive because, with these incentives, project payback can be achieved more quickly than ever before,” explained Jennifer Gunby, P.E., LEED AP, who heads up GBA’s Energy Studio. “Distributed wind differs from the large wind farms owned by utilities in that it is located behind-the-meter where it directly serves its owners. Owners may be cities, counties, state agencies, school districts, colleges and universities, business and industry, and agribusinesses – even individuals.”
