    A few weeks ago the Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014 was signed into law retroactively extending numerous green tax benefits, including the Section 179D tax deduction for energy efficient commercial buildings (which may be allocated to the designer for public projects). If you are interested in an outline of these changes, contact me at and I'll email you a PDF update.
