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!

Progress Energy Florida offers an incentive to its business customers for replacing their old equipment with high-efficiency models. Rebates are available for HVAC equipment including heat pumps and air conditioners, packaged terminal heat pumps, and water-cooled and air-cooled chillers. Rebates are also provided for improvements related to HVAC systems, including duct testing, demand control ventilation, high efficiency energy recovery ventilation, HVAC steam cleaning, and rooftop unit recommissioning. Efficient lighting, efficient compressed air systems and efficient motors are also eligible under this program. The cool roof product must have a solar reflectance greater than 0.70, and must be an Energy Star® labeled roof product based on ASTM E-903 or ASTM C-1549 testing. Building envelope improvements like ceiling insulation, window film, and a variety of products and approaches meant to reduce the amount of heat transferred from a building can be applied to both retrofits and new construction projects. Upon request, Progress Energy Florida will provide a free Business Energy Check to determine if the facility is eligible for the incentive. Eligible facilities will earn a per-square-foot incentive based on the type of material used. Additional restrictions apply. Interested customers should refer to the program website and related brochures for more details including incentive levels and equipment requirements.
