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.

Summary:

Appalachian Power and Wheeling Power are offering incentives under the APCo HomeSMART program to facilitate the implementation of cost-effective energy efficiency improvements for residential customers.

In order to qualify for rebates, customers must have received a completed free in-home assessment by Appalachian Power. An energy efficiency specialist will be sent to examine the customer’s home, generate a custom assessment report on the home and install simple low-cost energy efficiency improvements with the homeowner’s permission. In addition, the customer can request an assessment be performed by a contractor at a market based price.

Measures can be installed by a licensed contractor participating in the network or self-installed and inspected afterwards. Once work is completed by the contractor and paperwork has been submitted, a rebate check will be sent.
