Alternative Energy

As an alternative energy company, you understand that going green, reducing energy consumption and engaging in other sustainable business activities are not only socially responsible business practices, they can also yield significant tax benefits. Governments offer a wide range of renewable energy tax credits and incentives that may provide increased current cash flow, reduce tax liability, and help offset the cost of energy-efficient improvements.

BDO's alternative energy professionals help you to identify, negotiate and secure federal, state and local energy tax credit incentives, as well as assist with sustainability reporting.
