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!

Note: In March 2014, S.B. 340 became law, leading to the end of Indiana's Electric Efficiency Standard. Under S.B. 340, the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission may not "extend, renew, or require the establishment of an efficiency program" under the demand-side management program order issued in December 2009, and beginning in January 2015 they cannot require utilities to meet a goal or target this order specified. 

As part of the Indiana Demand Side Management Program, customers of participating utilities can receive rebates for lighting, HVAC systems, VFDs, and Energy Star commercial kitchen appliances. Rebates are available for one-for-one replacements, retrofits, and new installations. Work must be completed by the customer or a contractor and all installed equipment must be new. Incentives are limited to $20,000 per account or premise, though higher incentives may be considered. All applications with a rebate of more than $20,000 will be inspected, and all applications with rebates more than $1,000 with self-installed measures will also be inspected. More information regarding eligibility and application materials are available on the program web site.
