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!

NY PSC Opinion 98-19, Case 94-E-0952

The New York Public Service Commission (PSC) requires all electric utilities, energy service companies, jurisdictional municipal electric utilities and jurisdictional cooperative electric utilities to disclose details regarding the fuel mix and emissions of the supplier’s electric generation to customers. This information must be provided to retail customers in a standard format every 6 months.

The PSC created New York’s Environmental Disclosure Program via an order issued in December 1998. This program has been modified several times since it was established. A November 2008 PSC order reduced the frequency of the calculation of fuel mix and emissions data to once annually (the calendar year), but maintained the provision requiring customer disclosure of that data every six months.
