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!

Summary:

Incentives under this program have been temporarily suspended. View the program web site in early 2013 for details on incentive availability.

Georgia Power provides an incentive for home builders to subsidize the rating cost of new homes which meet ENERGY STAR guidelines. Through this program, builders constructing new efficient homes in Georgia Power's service territory, which utilize electric heating and water heating can receive a $300 incentive to help with the cost of having the home rated. The builder may choose the RESNET certified Home Energy Rater of builder choice to rate the house. The rater must review the house plans and perform required testing at completion to qualify the house as ENERGY STAR.
