The U.S. Department of Energy and the North Carolina Solar 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 the summer of 2014. Staff are currently working hard on the new DSIRE and are unfortunately only able to make minimal updates to the DSIRE website at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for using DSIRE.

Alameda Municipal Power offers an incentive program to customers who install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Rebates will be provided to commercial and residential customers on a per-watt AC basis, which, in keeping with the terms of the California Solar Initiative, will decline over the life of the program according to a 10-year schedule. Each succeeding year has a lower incentive amount and a higher maximum aggregate capacity for installations. For 2015, the rebate level is $1.68 per watt for systems less than 50 kilowatts (kW). Over the life of the program, Alameda Municipal Power has a goal of 2,127 kW of new solar capacity. The full 10-year incentive declination schedule can be found on the web site above.

Additional restrictions and eligibility requirements apply.
