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. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for using DSIRE.

Summary:

The Dallas Green Building Program establishes expedited permitting for green buildings. During Phase 1 of the program (October 1, 2009 - September 30, 2011), applicants must provide a checklist from Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) , Green Built Texas, or any other approved green building standard. The checklist must show that the project is eligible to obtain a certification under LEED standards. Beginning October 1, 2013 (Phase 2), all project applicants must provide a checklist that shows that the project is eligible for LEED Silver or higher. Applicants may use another approved green building standard during this phase as well.

Applicants do not actually have to register or certify their projects with the green building standard they have selected, but simply demonstrate that their projects would qualify.
