Energy Incentives

As part of our desire to provide added value to our projects, HICAPS is designing a process that will keep our clients on top of the tax credits/deductions and incentives that are available. These cost savings are not just limited to new construction. They can add huge cost savings to renovations and upgrading of energy systems. One very good resource is the Duke Energy website: This link will provide you with Smart Saver Incentives. Application Process & Contact Information are readily accessible. Our H/FACT group which provides Building Diagnostics and Assessments can provide information on energy audits and services that will help you determine your energy needs. Please call with any questions you may have. Our office number is 336-665-1234.
