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!

EnergySmart services are available to all businesses within Boulder County.

EnergySmart offers a full suite of energy efficiency services. EnergySmart helps businesses (and homeowners) identify and implement energy efficiency improvements. The “One Stop Shop” aims to reduce the hassles and hurdles associated with improving the energy efficiency and comfort of a home or business by providing an expert Energy Advisor to each participant. The Advisor assists with scheduling an energy assessment, reviewing contractor bids, and identifying and applying for all applicable incentives.

EnergySmart also provides rebates to commercial building owners and businesses for a wide variety of energy efficient technologies. Solar photovoltaic (PV) and other renewable energy measures may also be eligible for rebates.

The total of all incentives (i.e., EnergySmart rebates, utility rebates, grants, and other available incentives) will be limited to 50-70% of project cost of eligible measures, depending on the type of technology. HVAC projects are also capped at $7,500, whichever limit occurs first. A $10,000 rebate limit will be applied to renewable energy projects, and demonstrated energy efficiency performance or improvements are required first.

Rebates are first-come, first-served. Call an Energy Advisor at 303-441-1300 for more information on eligibility and the current availability of funds.
