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:

Prior to purchasing equipment, contact Pasadena Water & Power for incentive availability information on the Energy Efficiency Partnering Program.

Pasadena Water & Power offers the Energy Efficiency Partnering (EEP) program for its non-residential customers to save energy in facilities. Under the EEP program, any permanently installed energy-saving retrofit project may qualify for a rebate incentive. The more cost-effective and energy-saving the project is, the higher the rebate. For each kWh that the new project saves in comparison to the existing equipment's kWh usage, the customer will receive $0.06 - $0.44 (for a minimum of six months, and up to 36 months). If the project also reduces the coincidental summer or winter peak load by 10 kW or more, the customer will receive an additional incentive for each peak kW that has been reduced (for a maximum of three years). The total standard rebate received may not exceed 50% of the project's cost. The various rebate categories available are: Lighting projects, motors and compressors, chilled water conversion, package HVAC units, central plant, and other. Program applications are located on the web site.

  A variety of other rebates for cleaning, pool pumps, HVAC and food service equipment may be found on the program web site. Contact Utility for further detailed information and see "Energy conservation programs and rebates" on program web site listed above.
