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!

Web Site:

Dayton Power and Light's (DP&L) non-residential electricity customers are eligible for energy efficient technology rebates. Rebates are available for energy efficiency measures added to an existing system when a customer retires usable electric-powered equipment and replaces it with a more efficient model. Customers must demonstrate permanency or sustainability of savings over the payback period. Equipment must exceed minimum federal and state mandated efficiency standards. Rebates will be paid within 30 days of an inspection of the system. Custom rebates are available to non-residential distribution customers and must meet a payback period between one and seven years. See the program web site for more information on eligibility and equipment requirements.
