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:


The Delmarva Power Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Energy Savings Program is designed to promote and encourage the incorporation of energy efficient equipment, products, and services into non-residential construction, renovation, and replacement projects by offering cash incentives. All commercial, industrial, government, and public/private institutional electric customers of Delmarva Power ‘s Maryland service territories are eligible to participate in this program. The incentives are: Prescriptive (including lighting), HVAC, Custom, Building Commissioning, and Operations & Maintenance Training. The prescriptive incentives offer cash for lighting fixtures and controls, vending machine controls, motors, and variable frequency drives. The HVAC Prescriptive Incentives offer cash for energy efficient packaged and split-system heat pumps and air conditioners. The Custom Incentives give customers technical assistance and allows them to receive incentives for complex energy-efficiency measures that are not included in the two previously listed programs. Custom measures must achieve a minimum annual energy savings of 25,000 kWh to qualify. All of these programs require pre-approval before project implementation can begin, and all equipment must meet certain energy efficiency standards listed on the program application forms.

The Delmarva Power C&I Energy Savings Program also offers incentives to help customers pay for a commissioning study and/or implementation of the study for both Retro-Commissioning (existing buildings) and Enhanced Commissioning (new construction). Lastly, the Operations & Maintenance Training Incentives are designed to provide tuition support for facility managers and operational staff energy efficiency related training.
