Predominant Use

Generally, if energy is used in the manufacture of goods, then all or a portion of that energy may be exempt from sales tax. In order to claim the exemption, local utility companies and third party energy suppliers typically require proof of the exemption in the form of a predominant use study. This is a formal study prepared by a qualified engineer. Armed with this predominant use study, Good Energy is typically able to recoup up to three years of past sales tax payments from the local utility or third party energy supplier.
