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!

Web Site:

The Board of Directors for Valley Electric Association (VEA) approved net metering in April 2008. The rules apply to systems up to 30 kW, though owners of larger systems may be able to negotiate net metering terms with VEA on a case-by-case basis. VEA will make net metering available to eligible customer-generators in a timely manner and on a first-come, first-served basis up to zero point five percent (0.5%) of the VEA’s most recently measured annual peak load.

A customer-generator may choose to use an existing electric revenue meter if the VEA’s criteria are met. If the customer-generator’s existing electric revenue meter does not meet the requirements, VEA shall install and maintain a new revenue meter for the customer-generator, at VEA’s expense. The customer retains ownership of all renewable energy credits associated with their system.
