Federal LED Grants and Tax Saving Programs

The government can help you make the switch to green energy even easier! There are many opportunities for homes and businesses to receive grants or tax deductions by switching to LED. These energy efficient grants provide potential buyers with a huge bonus - they can help offset making the initial switch, while LED lighting itself provides consumers with tremendous energy and financial savings. Imagine the federal government handing you a nice check just for making a building environmentally friendly. Those type of programs are in the works on a variety of levels. Many tax breaks have been authorized by federal legislation for businesses and home owners.
