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 November 2010, the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners adopted Ordinance No. 10-78, creating the Voluntary Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Program. The program provides financing assistance for residential and commercial property owners of property located in Miami-Dade County. In order to participate in the program, the applicant must be the legal owner of the property on which the improvements will be made. In addition, the applicant must be current on any mortgage and cannot be in bankruptcy. The property may not be an asset in any bankruptcy proceeding and cannot have any federal income tax lien, judgment lien, construction lien, or similar. All property taxes must be paid and not have been delinquent for the previous three years (or the property owner's period of ownership, if less than three years).

Applications must be submitted to the county and must include a cost estimate for the installations completed by a certified contractor. The property owner must agree to a non-ad valorem assessment in order to secure a loan as part of the program. Loans are limited to 10% of the just value of the property unless the mortgage holder agrees to a higher financing amount, or the energy audit shows that the annual energy savings from the improvements would equal or exceed the annual repayment of loan. The repayment term may not exceed 20 years.
