Besides helping the environment, energy efficiency also cuts utility bills. Plus, choosing efficient products and renewable energy sources can also put money in your pocket through rebates and tax credits – but only if you know what programs exist in your area. Fortunately, DSIRE (the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency) makes it easy. DSIRE is the most comprehensive source of information on incentives and policies that support renewable energy and energy efficiency in the United States.
DSIRE provides easily searchable information on a wide variety of financial incentives including energy-efficiency tax credits, rebate programs, grants, and loan programs. Information is categorized by US states and territories, and visitors can also search listings of federal incentive programs. Users can search for incentives by a particular product or technology as well.
The DSIRE database was founded in 1995, and it’s operated by the North Carolina Solar Center with funding from the US Department of Energy. It includes a resource library and glossary for visitors, as well as a section focused exclusively on solar energy incentives.
Browse the incentive programs available in your area at the DSIRE website.
