The Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE) is a comprehensive source of information on federal, state, local, and utility incentives and policies that support renewable energy and energy efficiency in the United States. DSIRE is operated by the N.C. Clean Energy Technology Center at N.C. State University and is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.
To find information on federal grants and incentives for solar energy, visit the DSIRE website at:
On the DSIRE website, you can search for federal incentives by selecting “Federal” in the “Jurisdiction” dropdown menu. Additionally, you can filter the results by technology (e.g., solar) to find specific incentives applicable to solar energy installations.
It is essential to keep in mind that federal incentives and grant programs may change over time, so it is recommended to verify the current availability and requirements before proceeding with an application.
Please note that this information may change over time, and it’s always a good idea to check with your state’s energy office or department for the most up-to-date information on available incentives and application processes.
