PRLog - Jan. 3, 2011 - HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. -- On December 17, 2010, President Obama announced an extension of the Federal Energy Efficiency Tax Credit into 2011; however, many efficiency requirements and credit amounts within the legislation have changed.
The former 2009 - 2010 tax credit offered up to $1,500 in credits - 30% off of the total, installed price - while the extension offers up to $500 - 10% off the total, installed price - in Federal tax credits. The tax credits apply to energy efficient appliances, such as tankless water heaters, furnaces, and boilers - and newly added to the tax credit are air conditioners and heat pumps.
The 95% required efficiency rating on boilers is an increase from the former 90% requirement.
Additionally, the Colorado Governor's Energy Office, Xcel Energy, and some municipalities are still offering rebates for the installation for energy efficient appliances.
