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!

Energy Trust of Oregon offers the Industrial and Agricultural Production Efficiency Program to customers of Portland General Electric, Pacific Power, NW Natural and Cascade Natural Gas. In order to qualify for these rebates, customers must be contributing to the Public Purpose Charge. Energy Trust offers technical assistance and cash incentives for industrial processes of all kinds — including large industrial, manufacturing and small industrial, wineries, food processing, cold storage, agricultural, greenhouses, irrigation districts, and water/wastewater treatment. Standard prescriptive incentives include lighting, green motor rewinds, heat pumps, variable speed drives, and premium HVAC equipment. Other rebates designed to fit the needs of specific industrial processes also exist. For example, there are irrigation system rebates for agricultural customers and compressed air rebates for small manufacturing customers. Customers interested in participating in the program should contact an Energy Trust representative to find out which rebates best fit their particular facility.  Steps for reserving incentive funds for projects vary depending on the type and magnitude of the project.
