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!

Summary:

Cowlitz County PUD offers the Commercial Energy Efficiency Program (CEEP) for non-residential customers to improve the efficiency of facilities. The program offers incentives on lighting, custom measures that save energy, and improvement projects on industrial processes. For all of the incentive programs, customers must sign an “Incentive/Implementation Agreement” with Cowlitz PUD BEFORE purchase and installation of equipment.

The CEEP Plus Lighting Program offers incentives for non-residential customers to buy energy efficient lighting systems. Rebates are available for 'new construction' lighting and retrofits to existing lighting systems. More information and a detailed list of rebate amounts can be found in the program brochure.

The CEEP Commercial Custom Program offers an incentive to any commercial-sector (non-manufacturing) business that installs electrical energy saving measures in facilities. This program offers an incentive of up to $0.20 per kilowatt-hour of verified annual energy savings or 70% of incremental project costs, whichever is less.

The Energy Savings Plan Industrial Conservation Effort (Energy SPICE) Program provides financial incentives to industrial manufacturers for the development and installation of electrical energy saving measures in processes. Energy SPICE Plus can provide an incentive of up to $0.25 per kilowatt-hour of verified annual energy savings or 70% of incremental project costs, whichever is less. If projects produce more than 500,000 kWh of annual savings, the incentive is $0.25 per the first 500,000 kWh saved and $0.15 for each incremental kWh saved (with the same cap of 70% of total project costs).
