Tax Credits for Energy Efficiency:
Be Aware of Federal Tax Credit Changes:
Federal tax credits after 2010 - Starting October 1, 2009, you might see a red or black label, in combination with ENERGY STAR product labels. This label identifies high-efficiency products that currently qualify for the ENERGY STAR credit, but will not meet the more stringent requirements that go into full effect April 1, 2010. The new blue label, also available in stores now, will help you find products that qualify for ENERGY STAR and are also eligible for the tax credit.
