NAC 701A - Green Building Tax Abatement Rulemaking
The Nevada Governor's Office of Energy (GOE) administers the green building tax abatement program based on criteria set forth in the LEED or Green Globes rating system and certification from the Green Building Certification Incorporation (GBCI) or the Green Building Initiative (GBI). Both LEED and Green Globes rating systems provide a complete framework for assessing building performance and meeting environmental sustainable goals. They use industry recognized standards for designing, operating and certifying green building projects. The program was instituted in 2007 as an incentive for business owners to improve the energy efficiency of new and existing buildings.
