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!

Through the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund, rebates are available for commercial, industrial or municipal customers of Connecticut Natural Gas Corporation, Southern Connecticut Gas Company, or Yankee Gas Services Company that are on a firm gas rate.  Three programs: Energy Opportunities, Operations & Maintenance and Energy Conscious Blueprint are available to help customers achieve their energy saving goals.  The Energy Opportunities program focuses on helping customers replace outdated and inefficient equipment with newer and more efficient models.  The Energy Conscious Blueprint program encourages customers to factor in energy savings measures when laying out plans for new construction projects.  Finally, the Operation and Maintenance Services program ensures that energy efficient improvements are not wasted by providing technical support and training for energy efficient systems and equipment.  Incentives vary by size and equipment and according to which of the three programs energy saving projects are classified under; consult the program web site for further details and specific project requirements.
