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!

Muscatine Power and Water (MP&W) offers rebates for energy efficient upgrades to commercial and industrial customers. Rebates are available for commercial lighting retrofits, energy efficient motors, LED exit signs, fluorescent light bulbs, air conditioners, air source and water source heat pumps, geothermal heat pumps, and custom measures that reduce electricity demand. Facilities must receive an energy audit from MP&W prior to any equipment replacement in order to be eligible for demand reduction based rebates. The prescriptive appliance rebates are exempt from this requirement. Potential rebates totaling $2,000 or more must receive pre-approval from MP&W.  Specific rebate amounts and program details are located on the program overview and information brochure. Custom rebate amounts are determined through a meeting between the customer and MP&W and a technical review by MP&W.

Measures must be purchased during a given calendar year in order to qualify for the incentives offered during that year. Applications for measures taken during previous years must be submitted by March 31 of the following year. All rebates are subject to funding availability and the program may be discontinued at any time without notice. It is the responsibility of the applicant to verify that the program remains active prior to making any equipment purchases. Muscatine Power and Water also offers a donation program in which commercial and industrial customers may have a wind turbine or solar array installed on a contributor's property.
