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!

The Coldwater Board of Public Utility, in conjunction with American Municipal Power's "Efficiency Smart" program, offers a wide range of incentives that encourage commercial and industrial to pursue energy efficient equipment and energy saving measures.  Prescriptive rebates are available for efficient lighting, HVAC equipment, compressed air systems and accessories, motors, refrigeration equipment, and food service equipment.  Efficiency Smart also provides a custom incentive program for energy saving projects which may not be covered by the prescriptive program.  Program applications, which include rebate calculation worksheets, are available on the program web site.  Consult the program's terms on the application and contact the Coldwater Board of Public Utility or the Efficiency Smart program with any questions.
