About the Seminar…
Matt Hoots of the Hoots Group will be presenting a case study of one of their green renovations. This renovation will be getting multiple green certifications and is eligible for tax credits and rebates as a result of the energy saving components that were installed. Matt will review the certifications that the house received that are able to be listed on FMLS. In addition, he will show how the homeowner was able to receive Federal and State tax credits along with rebates from Georgia Power.
