    Although skylight manufacturers were encouraged by the government’s promise to extend the tax credit available to consumers when purchasing energy-efficient products, the .30/.30 standard chosen as the definitive qualification is not only, virtually impossible to achieve in the manufacture of skylights, but negates the inherent energy saving of skylights which is achieved by harnessing and utilizing natural daylight, reducing the need for abundantly overburdened electricity-based resources.

    S.1792 seeks to include products that meet the 2010 Energy Star requirements. The Energy Star criteria, ensures that energy standards, product performance and regional weather differences are addressed and met.

    The skylight industry employs over 2,000 people across the US. We have over 20,000 dealers, over 30,000 installers and over 50,000 builders who have been negatively impacted by the tax credit as written in the 2009 stimulus plan.

    Please support the recent legislation.
