LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Concord Managing Member Paula T. Pyles will be part of a panel of industry experts participating in an upcoming National Association of Energy Service Companies webinar, "Applying 179D for Maximum Benefit" the first in NAESCO's 2016 NAESCO Webinar series.

The webinar discusses the Section 179D deduction for energy-efficient building design and how it affects the ESCO industry. This marks the third consecutive year NAESCO has asked Concord, the country's leading expert on Section 179D, to present on this topic. 

The webinar, which is free to NAESCO members and $25 for the general public, will cover a number of subjects of particular importance to the ESCO industry, including

  • the benefits of the §179D deduction to the ESCO industry
  • the building systems eligible for the deduction
  • the impact of legislative changes on projects completed in 2016
  • the process to qualify for the §179D deduction
  • what future legislative developments may hold in store for the deduction

"Having been a member of NAESCO for the past six years, Concord has had the opportunity to discuss this vitally important deduction with energy services industry leaders, work with the NAESCO-sponsored lobbying groups seeking to extend and expand the 179D deduction, and assist many NAESCO members with their 179D projects. We know firsthand how important this deduction can be to the ESCOs who are members of the organization," said Pyles.

"Participating in learning opportunities concerning the deduction is a critical part of Concord's role in the marketplace, and we could not be more proud to be asked to participate in this webinar series again this year."

"Applying 179D for Maximum Benefit" will be held Monday March 21st from 2:00-3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time.
