Who's Eligible

Free energy assessments are available statewide for small business and not-for-profit customers that have 10 employees or less and an average annual electric demand of 100 kW or less.

What this Program Offers

This program will provide energy assessments to small businesses and not-for-profit organizations to help them make informed electrical energy decisions and implement energy-efficiency strategies. Assessments help identify economically viable improvements that yield substantial annual energy savings.

Not eligible for a free energy assessment?

NYSERDA’s FlexTech program offers cost-shared energy studies to NYS industrial and commercial facilities, state and local governments, not-for-profit and private institutions, public and private K-12 schools, colleges and universities, and health care facilities. Facilities must pay into the electric or gas System Benefits Charge (SBC) to be eligible for a cost-shared energy study.
