Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE)

A comprehensive resource of federal and state renewable energy financial incentives and policies.

The DSIRE web site provides summaries of renewable energy and energy efficiency incentives and policies established by the federal government, state governments and U.S. territories, local governments, and larger electric and gas utilities in the United States. DSIRE also offers summary maps and summary tables, and a search tool to help users determine which incentives and policies apply (or might apply) to a specific project. The search tool allows users to search for relevant incentives and policies by state, incentive type, technology type, implementing sector and eligible sector.
