RALEIGH, N.C. - The Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy (DSIRE), which offers information on government and utility incentives for renewable energy, now also provides information on energy efficiency incentives. The North Carolina Solar Center, which manages the DSIRE Website, announced that the site has been expanded to include state and federal incentives for energy efficiency upgrades; purchases of energy efficient products or systems; and construction of new energy efficient buildings.

The free Web resource supplies incentive details, links to program Websites, and contacts. Incentives include:

  • tax credits and deductions

  • rebates

  • low-interest loans

  • grants

  • property tax exemptions

  • sales tax exemptions

  • bond programs

    Users can search for efficiency incentives by state, by technology (insulation, lighting, etc.), by incentive type (tax credit, rebate, etc.), and other criteria.

    To view the database, visit www.dsireusa.org.
