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.

NOTE: Available funding for fiscal year 2012 has been exhausted for the CoServ Solar PV Rebate Program.

CoServ Electric Cooperative provides a variety of "Think Green Rebates" to its members, including a solar energy rebate. The solar photovoltaic (PV) system must be less than or equal to 50 kW, but the rebate is available only on the first 2.5 kW. Customers must sign an interconnection agreement (with net metering) for on-site generation with CoServ. It should be noted that any excess generation from the system will be given to CoServ, so it is important to size the system appropriately to avoid this situation. Interested customers are encouraged to contact the utility for more details before making investment decisions.
