Seattle, WA, July 09, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Seattle based, Good To Be Green has launched its new state-by-state incentives directory with the help of the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiencies (DSIRE). This new directory can be found under the Tools and Resources section of the Good To Be Green web site and currently consists of summaries of state, local, city, utility and federal tax breaks and financial incentives for 23 states, with all 50 states due to be available by mid-July. Incentives are organized by sector and the full text of the incentive is available via a link to the DSIRE web site.
The unique content sharing partnership developed between Good To Be Green and DSIRE aims to increase the awareness of the programs available to residential and commercial consumers, building owners, architects, engineers and developers in order to promote the use of environmentally friendly building products and practices.
Chidozie Bright, President of Good To Be Green believes that this new feature will serve their site’s visitors greatly because, “…people are generally aware of the immediate costs and eventual cost benefits of building green due to lower utility bills, but they don’t always seem to know about the government and utility sponsored programs that are available to them to offset the out-of-pocket costs,” and that “DSIRE has done such a great job identifying and documenting these incentives, we are very happy to help spread the word.”
