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!

New Hampshire Electric Co-Op offers incentives for its large business customers (using 100 kW or more) to increase the energy efficiency of facilities through the Large Business Energy Solutions Program. This program offers prescriptive and custom rebates designed to pay up to 35% of the installed cost or a buy-down to a one-year payback, whichever is less. To qualify for rebates, the business must be a non-residential property, an NHEC member, and the proposed measures will save electricity and pass a benefits/cost test. Eligible projects include: lighting conversions and controls, energy-efficient motors, variable frequency drives (VFDs), HVAC and compressed air equipment and controls, LED traffic lights, and approved custom projects. NHEC may schedule a visit during or after installation to monitor the kWh reduction and energy savings of the installed measures. All necessary program information is located on the website listed above.
