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.

Appalachian Power and Wheeling Power are offering prescriptive incentives under the APCo C&I Prescriptive program to facilitate the implementation of cost-effective energy efficiency improvements for non-residential customers.

The APCo C&I Prescriptive program offers prescriptive incentives for some of the more common energy efficiency measures. Program incentives are available under the APCo C&I Prescriptive program to include non-residential accounts served on APCo’s regulated retail rates. Qualifying projects must be installed in a facility in APCo’s electric service territory. These incentives are available to all non-residential customers who pay into the Energy Efficiency and Demand Response Cost Recovery rider and receive their electricity from APCo. A customer may neither apply for nor receive incentives for the same product, equipment or service from more than one utility. Contact AEP/Appalachian Power for additional information on this program.
