Do you DSIRE more energy efficiency in your home?

If you are wondering about how to lower your energy costs and get on board with renewable energy then you should know about DSIRE - Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency.

energy issues

Just go to the website and click on your state to see what programs are available to YOU.  

Depeding on where you live, you'll find info about: 

  • tax credits
  • tax rebates
  • utility rebates
  • building incentives
  • property tax incentives
  • loans
  • grants
Who doesn't want to save money and feel good about saving the envronment too?  
 
Homeowners - Don't wait until it's too late, get your plan started now.  An energy efficient home will be easier to sell and you might even get a better price.
 
Realtors - You should know about what's available in your community to help your clients if they have questions.  Buyers are looking for "greener" homes and sellers can add value before they put their homes on the market.
 
Hawaii is all about using renewables, and we're in a perfect position to do so, with sun and wind, geothermal and waves.

Created advice Georgina! Staying on top of what local governments offer then take away is a fulltime job. Great programs, come and go, as does funding...

Hi Georgina-

Thanks for the cool and informative map link.  This will make a very good re-bog if you don't mind.  I hope you enjoy a great day in Maui.  My nephew has lived there for several years and loves it.  We may just have to fly over for a visit :)

Best regards from the Q
