We have a new home client that is asking if there are incentives in Florida (particularly Captiva Island)



Hi Betty,

There probably aren't any LEED specific tax incentives, but there may be some more broad 'green' building incentives.

  • I typically reference the Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE) for a listing of some incentives.  Here's a link to their Florida directory.
  • You should also check with your electric utility and local building department to see if they have any green building incentives.

Remember, that your biggest paybacks for a LEED home may not be quantifiable. The value of improved air quality, durability, lower utility bills, etc... all are hard to quantify.


For more information:

Read Rick Goyette's Q&A "What are the financial or tax incentives for building a LEED for Homes certified house?"
