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:

Focus on Energy offers financial incentives to eligible business customers to retro-commission buildings to optimize performance. The program provides incentives for building efficiency studies based on the size of the facility and the number of recommended measures installed. Incentive levels for installed measures are $0.08 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) or $0.5/therm. The incentive is distributed in 2 separate payments; the first payment is distributed after measures have been installed, and the second payment is distributed after a site visit 90 days after the installations are verified.

To obtain incentives, interested applicants must work with a Retro-Commissioning Service Provider adviser to complete the initial study. Please note that customer eligibility for Focus on Energy incentives is based on utility participation; interested individuals and companies should use the eligibility tool on the program web site to determine if their local utility participates in the Focus on Energy program.
