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:

Through a multi-member partnership, Cape Light Compact (CLC) and Masssave offer a variety of financial incentives for commercial, industrial, and municipal facilities. Custom rebate options are available for both new construction and retrofit measures in commercial/industrial buildings, as well as for small businesses and municipal projects. New and existing buildings may be eligible for prescriptive rebates on HVAC equipment and controls, motor VFDs, sensors and lighting equipment/controls through the partnership. Rebates may vary depending on whether projects are retrofit or new construction.

In the installation process, CLC may require the use of company-hired consultants and pre-approved vendors. For more information on the steps required to receive a CLC incentive, see the application checklist available on the CLC commercial rebates homepage. Additionally, architects and engineers that wish to participate in Cape Light Compact programs must attend a free informational seminar. Contact CLC or view the Masssave web site for more information on available incentives.
