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!

Through Idaho Power's Irrigation Efficiency Rewards program, agricultural irrigation customers qualify to receive an incentive for a portion of the cost to install a new, more efficient irrigation system or to make energy-efficient improvements to an existing one. Idaho Power’s agricultural representatives can provide an energy evaluation free of charge to help determine what part of the system can be changed to make it more energy efficient.

There are two ways to participate in the program:

  • The Custom Incentive is for extensive retrofits of existing systems or for new irrigation systems and is based on annual kilowatt-hour (kWh) or kilowatt (kW) savings of your proposed modifications as estimated by Idaho Power. For a new system the incentive is based upon installation of a system that Idaho Power determines to be more energy efficient than standard.
  • The Menu Incentive provides a rebate for the purchase of specified replacement parts and components for existing irrigation systems. The incentive varies by the sprinkler component or part incorporated in the system. Incentives are offered for 11 specific sprinkler parts.

    More information on both incentives can be found on the project overview. Contact Idaho Power for additional details.
