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 PSE&G Municipal Direct Install Program provides recommended efficiency upgrades up front with a program budget of $50 million to government and non-profit facilities including schools with a willingness to repay 20% of the cost over two years.  The program will target all government and non-profit entities who receive natural gas and/or electricity from PSE&G. Customers with electric demand of 150 kW or less will be eligible for the program. Eligible facilities include municipal, local, state and federal government offices, courtrooms, town halls, police and fire stations, sanitation department buildings, transportation department structures, regional authorities, correctional facilities, schools, community centers, and non-profit facilities. County or regionally structured bodies such as county colleges and regional utility authorities (water/sewer) also are included.

The Municipal Program offers a walk-through energy-savings improvements audit. The program will initially provide 100% of the cost to install the recommended energy-savings improvements. Upon completion of the work, the customer must repay 20% of the total cost to PSE&G over two years, (or in a lump sum if the customer prefers), interest free on the PSE&G utility bill. Energy-savings improvements available through this Sub-Program are primarily lighting upgrades, insulation, refrigeration and HVAC upgrades while other energy-saving measures may be considered.
