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!

The Indiana Power and Light Business (IPL) Energy Incentives Program assists commercial and industrial customers with reducing energy consumption through three common types of equipment: lighting, motors and pumps (for HVAC and Processing Equipment). The program also offers Custom Incentives to provide incentives for energy efficiency projects involving other technologies. Participants interested in the Custom program should define the project and submit an application early, as they must be pre-screened and pre-approved while the targeted incentives do not unless they exceed $20,000 in rebates. Once an application gains approval, an incentive is reserved until project completion. Contact IPL for more information on this offering.
