July 4, 2005: Senate-Passed Energy Bill Goes To Conference Committee
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) notes that ASHRAE Standard 90.1 figures prominently in the Senate-passed bill.
An energy efficiency provision provides a tax deduction of up to $2.25 per square foot for new or renovated commercial buildings that exceed the ASHRAE 90.1-2001 standard by 50 percent. Federal energy efficiency goals for government buildings include exceeding the ASHRAE 90.1 standard by 30 percent.
