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 Nebraska Public Power District offers rebates to homeowners who purchase energy efficient heat pumps, upgrade their insulation, and/or have their cooling system tuned-up. The High Efficiency Heat Pump Program offers rebates for both air-source and geothermal heat pumps. Once the installing contractor has installed the heat pump, they must conduct a Performance Verification Test of the system. Results from this test must be attached to the program application. If the installed heat pump is 14 SEER or higher, the installing contractor can also receive a $50 rebate.

The Cooling System Tune-Up Program offers a $30 incentive to homeowners that have any type of cooling system tuned-up. Customers are eligible for only one incentive every three years.  Finally, Nebraska Public Power District provides rebates of $0.15 per square foot of insulation (up to $300) when customers add 6 inches or R-19 to their attic.  Review the program brochures and applications, available on the program website, for more information.
