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.

Texas-New Mexico Power's Commercial Solutions Program provides incentives for the retrofit installation of a wide range of measures that reduce customer energy costs, reduce peak demand, and/or save energy in non-residential facilities. Incentives are paid to energy efficiency service providers on the basis of standardized savings (formulas for measures in representative building types) or on the basis of measured savings.

The SCORE program targets energy efficient upgrades at school facilities and the CitySmart Program is designed to assist local governments with energy efficient improvements. Both programs help participants identify energy efficiency opportunities in existing and newly planned facilities and to provide monetary incentives to help implement the projects. The programs are funded by the Texas New Mexico Power Company and offered at no cost to participants. No products or services are sold through the CitySmart or SCORE Programs. Customized energy performance benchmarking, energy master planning workshops, technical energy efficiency assistance, communications and public relations support, and cash incentives are available. Additionally, lighting retrofit projects may qualify for additional bonus incentives. Contact TNMP for more information on these offerings.
