Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE)

What is DSIRE?

DSIRE is a comprehensive source of information on federal, state, local, and utility incentives designed to promote renewable energy and energy efficiency. Information is updated as it becomes available, usually daily. DSIRE was established in 1995 and is an ongoing project of the North Carolina Solar Center and the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.

How can the database be viewed?

There are two searchable databases: a renewable energy database and an energy efficiency database. These databases can be searched either by state or at the federal level. Searches are organized into two categories: (1) financial incentives; and (2) rules, regulations and policies. It is also possible to search using select criteria, such as the eligible sector, e.g., commercial, industrial, etc. and technology type.

Why is DSIRE of special interest to commercial property owners and managers and those that service this sector?

The addition of any kind of government or utility financial incentive to install technology that will improve energy efficiency in a building will increase the return on investment.
