Energy Policy Act Benefits

Energy costs are higher, lighting technology continues to advance and a building with a 10 year old lighting system is simply wasting money. Now is the time to act on the opportunities presented by the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005). The "Commercial Building Tax Deduction" establishes a tax deduction for expenses incurred for energy efficient building upgrades made by a building owner. This legislation provides a number of new ways for you to increase your building's energy efficiency and cut cost out of your operation.

The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (HR-1424), approved and signed on October 3, 2008, extends the benefits of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 through December 31, 2013.

Let Rexel show you the true Value of Light. Rexel has the expertise and solutions to help you get the most out of this legislation.
