The U.S. Department of Energy and the North Carolina Solar 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 the summer of 2014. Staff are currently working hard on the new DSIRE and are unfortunately only able to make minimal updates to the DSIRE website at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for using DSIRE.

Summary:

Large commercial and industrial Idaho Power customers that reduce energy usage through more efficient electrical commercial and industrial processes may qualify for an incentive that is the lesser of either 12 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) saved per year or 70% of the project cost. The incentive is specifically for customers on Large General Service, Large Commercial, and Large Power Service, although other large industrial customers may qualify. Incentives are given to customers that are making complex energy efficiency upgrades to electrical industrial and commercial processes, motor systems, controls, fans, pumps, compressors, lighting, air conditioning and refrigeration systems. Projects must be completed within one year of signing an obligatory contract agreement with Idaho Power and incentives will be dispersed after final certification and only as long as funds are available. For more information, including an application, project overview and service representative contact information can be found on Idaho Power's web site.

Through Idaho Power's Irrigation Efficiency Rewards program, agricultural customers qualify to receive an incentive for a portion of the cost to install a new, more efficient irrigation system or to make energy-efficient improvements to an existing one. Idaho Power’s agricultural representatives can provide an energy evaluation free of charge to help determine what part of the system can be changed to make it more energy efficient.  The Custom Incentive is for extensive retrofits of existing systems or for new irrigation systems and is based on annual kilowatt-hour (kWh) or kilowatt (kW) savings of proposed modifications as estimated by Idaho Power. For a new system the incentive is based upon installation of a system that Idaho Power determines to be more energy efficient than standard.
The Menu Incentive provides a rebate for the purchase of specified replacement parts and components for existing irrigation systems.
