The Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE) has a wealth of information on incentives and policies that support renewable energy and energy efficiency in the United States, including solar. In order to make that info more accessible to those who need it, when they need it, the DSIRE is teaming up with EnergySage, an online comparison shopping marketplace for solar. EnergySage and its full set of tools are now available through DSIRE, including comprehensive solar data on pricing and savings.
Like DSIRE, the EnergySage Solar Marketplace provides consumers with access to a free, unbiased content library built to simplify the process of researching and going solar. By collaborating with EnergySage, DSIRE is offering consumers the option to seamlessly move from education and research, to evaluating their solar options online.
“The collaboration represents DSIRE’s ongoing effort to better assist its users. Visitors who are interested in solar now have a seamless bridge that connects important incentive and policy information with ways to take informed action. The value of bridging this gap cannot be overemphasized because progress is made when good information leads to doing the right thing,” states Henry Tsai, Deputy Director of the NC. Clean Energy Technology Center, which administers DSIRE.
Backed by the U.S. Department of Energy and with a growing network of more than 400 pre-screened solar installation companies, EnergySage is recommended by more than 50 prominent organizations that utilize the EnergySage platform to help their employees, customers, members, residents, etc. better understand their solar energy options.
