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!

EPE offers incentives to residential customers in its New Mexico service territory that purchase and install high efficiency equipment for residential use. Eligible equipment includes air conditioners, heat pumps, evaporative cooling units, replacement windows, air infiltration equipment, insulation, new homes, duct efficiency, and solar screens. An incentive is also available for the proper recycling of working refrigerator units. Rebates are valid for new or existing residential dwellings. Some incentives, including insulation, vary depending on the type, size, original efficiency, and end efficiency of the installation. Qualified contractors must install certain equipment to qualify customers for rebates. Once equipment is installed, complete application form and submit with a copy of your receipt or contractor invoice to the address on the Rebate Application Form. Receipts and invoices need to clearly indicate equipment specifics, including efficiency and model number. Customers should carefully review the rebate documents and program requirements before purchasing a system. Efficiency and performance standards of equipment must meet minimum program requirements. Contractors and customers can call the utility or a program representative for more information.
