Ideas Worth Sharing:

  • “You must talk to your tax professional to guide you through these decisions [around investing in on-site energy projects].” – James Coombes
  • “The depreciation value is dependent on your marginal tax rate. So when we do have LLCs that aren’t paying a 21% corporate rate, they’re paying an individual rate often upwards of 30%. That depreciation is even more valuable to you in that context.” – James Coombes
  • “When we talk about financing tax credits, we’re talking about passing the benefit of the credit through in the form of a lower cost to the customer.” – James Coombes
