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!

Alliant Energy - Interstate Power and Light (IPL) offers rebates for high efficiency equipment for commercial customers. Rebates are available for high efficiency lighting equipment, occupancy sensors, central air conditioners, geothermal heat pumps, windows, appliances, refrigeration equipment, food service equipment, newly constructed buildings and custom measures. Appliance rebates range from $25 - $50, provided that all equipment requirements have been met. In addition to CFL fixtures which are covered at 50% of the purchase price, fixtures and signage are also eligible for rebates up to $120 per fixture.
HVAC, refrigeration, motors and food service equipment incentives may vary based upon the size or energy efficiency of the installed unit. See the program web site for more details on this equipment. Custom projects, which vary greatly, are awarded for the completion of projects which attain significant energy savings but are outside the scope of the prescriptive offerings. Customers who are planning on engaging in new construction or planning to implement a customized energy saving retrofit should contact IPL for more information. In addition to these rebates, Alliant-IP&L offers financial incentives for customers who have energy loads voluntarily curtailed during peak periods. More information can be found at the program web site.
