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!

DTE offers a combination of energy audit discounts and rebates for the installation of energy efficiency improvements in Detroit Edison Electric and Michigan Consolidated Gas Co. service areas. Actual rebate levels vary according to whether the customer receives MichCon gas, DTE electric service, or both. Eligible measures and equipment includes clothes washers, dehumidifiers, programmable thermostats, energy audits, insulation, room air conditioning, appliance recycling, furnaces, boilers, air sealing, and energy audits. Customers should check the program web site for details (see rebate chart). Heating system applications must be filled out separately from Home Energy Audit offers. Rebates also vary based by equipment size and efficiency.

In addition to low income weatherization programs, the Multifamily Dwelling Program offers upgrades in units and common areas for buildings with 5 or more units. Common area improvements include assistance with fluorescent lighting retrofits, lighting controls/sensors, and outdoor/safety lighting. Inside units, tenants can receive upgrades to CFLs, pipe wrap insulation, and water saving devices. Participation is first come-first serve, and an energy audit should be completed prior to installations. More information at 866-796-0512.
