Energy assessments can help small businesses and not-for-profit organizations make informed energy decisions and implement energy-efficiency strategies. Assessments help identify economically viable improvements that yield substantial annual energy savings.
This Energy Audit Program is available to small business and not-for-profit customers that have 10 full time employees or less and an average annual electric demand of less than 100 kW.
Process for Free Energy Assessments
- Contact the consultant in your region, which is listed in the table below
- The consultant will help you complete an application and explain the process in detail
- The consultant will visit the site to assess the conditions for the report
- The consultant will complete the report showing identified energy savings measures, estimated energy savings, estimated cost savings and the costs to install the measures
- You will decide whether the measures will be implemented. If desired, you can also pursue low-interest financing opportunities. The consultant can help complete a request for project bids, review bids for the project and guide organizations through other NYSERDA opportunities like financing and equipment incentives.

Other Energy Assessments
If your organization is not eligible for a free energy assessment but would still like to identify energy saving opportunities and access financing opportunities, there are other means to have an energy assessment completed:
- FlexTech Program
- Third-Party Assessments
Organizations are welcome to have energy assessments completed by a third-party contractor or consultant that is not affiliated with NYSERDA. The energy assessment can be used to access low-interest financing opportunities if it meets NYSERDA standards [PDF].
