  • After 35 years, BETC program comes to an end

    After 35 years, the Business Energy Tax Credit program has reached its end (as of July 1). During that time, it helped thousands of businesses, schools, non-profits, tribal governments and others save money and energy by providing incentives for energy conservation projects. It also led to investments in renewable energy resources, both large and small. The BETC supported the development and use of alternative modes of transportation, which lowered energy costs and reduced emissions. The BETC program has been replaced with a number of new incentives for conservation, transportation and renewable energy projects.
