Multifamily Performance Program (MPP): Performance Pays
Performance pays when you approach your building as a complete system for big energy savings. The Multifamily Performance Program (MPP) is available for multifamily buildings with five or more units and four or more floors. It includes an initial whole-building assessment and creation of an approved Energy Reduction Plan, with specific executable steps intended to boost your energy efficiency by 15 percent or more. Incentives are in the form of a flat payment ranging from $2,500 to $20,000 plus an additional $600 per unit (or $1.50/sq. ft. on new construction) toward the implementation of recommendations contained in the Energy Reduction Plan. Programs for low-cost financing are also available through Green Jobs–Green NY.
The best way to start is by finding a qualified Multifamily Performance Partner to guide you through the application process.

Multifamily Carbon Emissions Reduction Program (MCERP): Cough up less cash – and fewer emissions
When you convert your building's #6 heating oil system to a cleaner burning fuel, you will increase long-term property value, contribute to greater public health, and be future-compliant with upcoming laws banning the use of #6 fuel oil. The program is available to multifamily properties with five or more residential units, and pays based on the total reduction in your building's carbon footprint, with a $175,000 cap. Funding for this program is limited, and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. You can apply online, or through a NYSERDA-qualified Partner.
