The U.S. Department of Energy and the North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center are excited to announce that a new, modernized DSIRE is under construction. The new version of DSIRE will offer significant improvements over the current version, including expanded data accessibility and an array of new tools for site users. The new DSIRE site will be available in December 2014. Staff are currently working hard on the new version of DSIRE but are also maintaining the content of the current version of DSIRE. Thank you for your continued support and patience during this transition. We hope you are as excited for December as we are!

In order to meet Arizona's 22% energy reduction by 2020 goal, APS offers energy efficiency incentives to multifamily building residents. CFLs, thermostat shut-offs and water controls are offered as part of the free energy assessment program to residents and common areas upgrades are incentivized through rebates to building owners.  The program also provides incentives for new construction and major renovation multifamily projects. Developers can qualify for a rebate by building to APS energy efficiency standards.
