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!

Interstate Power and Light (Alliant Energy) offers prescriptive rebates for a variety of energy efficient products for agricultural customers. In addition to these incentives, IPL offers a Farm Energy Audit and New Construction Programs. For the Farm Energy Audit, customers that install technologies suggested by the energy audit are eligible for rebates. The New Construction Program offers both design and construction incentives for high efficiency buildings. For design, the customer works with IPL on the design of the building and the incentive amount is based on the square footage of the building. The construction incentives are based on the annualized therm and kilowatt-hour savings after the project is completed. For more information on this program, see the New Construction web site.
