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.

Note: Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is providing a total of $300 million to U.S. states, U.S. territories and the District of Columbia to establish rebate programs for new energy-efficient appliances that replace existing appliances in homes. This program was established in order spend out funds remaining from the residential rebate program. The program will be available through February 1, 2013 or until funds are exhausted.

New York is offering rebates to government entities for the purchase and installation of certain energy efficient appliances and power strips. Governments having received a direct ARRA Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant do not qualify for the program. A list of eligible governments is available on the program web site. Energy Star equipment purchased on or after September 25, 2012 is eligible for a 75% rebate. Rebates are limited to $4,999 per item and $20,000 per eligible government.  A minimum of 10 CFLs, 10 LEDs, and/or a minimum of 2 power strips must be purchased in order for those items to be eligible for a rebate. Incentives from this program may not be combined with incentives offered by utility companies or municipalities, although they may be combined with manufacturer incentives and retail promotions. Applications are available online, and will be available until February 1, 2013 or until funds are exhausted.
