How the Economic Stimulus Plan Could Effect Dilworth, NC Real Estate - Charlotte Real Estate News




Homeowners looking to save energy, makers of solar panels and wind turbines and companies hoping to bring the electric grid into the computer age all stand to reap major benefits.

The package contains more than $42 billion in energy-related investments from tax credits to homeowners to loan guarantees for renewable energy projects and direct government grants for makers of wind turbines and next-generation batteries.

There's a 30 percent tax credit of up to $1,500 for the purchase of a highly efficient residential air conditioners, heat pumps or furnaces. The credit also can be used by homeowners to replace leaky windows or put more insulation into the attic. About $300 million would go for rebates to get people to buy efficient appliances. "

 The Dilworth neighborhood, located in the Southend area of Charlotte, NC; is made up of older, more historic homes.  The "Energy" portion of the Economic Stimulus plan could be of great benefit to many homeowners in the Dilworth area.  With so many homes being remodeled and/or updated in Dilworth, the economic plan provides a double bonus to homeowners.  Not only are you improving your home and increasing its value, but you are also getting some tax relief in doing so.   As Charlotte becomes a more "green" area, I think more and more people should and will take advantage of the tax benefits being offered.  Why not help the environment and put a little extra money in your pocket.
