The U.S. Department of Energy and the North Carolina Solar 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 the summer of 2014. Staff are currently working hard on the new DSIRE and are unfortunately only able to make minimal updates to the DSIRE website at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for using DSIRE.

Summary:

RG&E is offering residential natural gas customers rebates for installing energy efficient equipment. Customers can complete one rebate application for multiple pieces of equipment as long as they are not the same type of equipment. Most products must be installed using a licensed contractor or a contractor that can supply either a Federal ID number, a Certificate of Insurance or a Business Certificate. Customers can refer to the ENERGY STAR Web site for tips on how to find the right contractor.

An online rebate reservation system is used to ensure program funds are not overextended. All new rebate requests must first be reserved in the rebate reservation system to be valid. The program will automatically close once all available program funding has been accounted for by online rebate reservations.
