These organizations line the pockets of the 1%.
Landlords "improve" their property with insulation, new windows or solar and receive huge tax rebates for doing so. My problems with this are:
1) They already receive a write-off for the capital improvements, so why do they need additional rebates?
2) They then jack up their rents under the rubric of "reduced energy costs" for the tenants.
3) They are also paying a much lower tax % than the people who work for them. Labor income vs. investiment income.
A bunch of greenwashing hooey!
