New York Residential Statewide Baseline Study

New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is conducting a statewide study in cooperation with your utility company to understand the building characteristics, energy efficient equipment, and energy usage in your home. This study includes telephone, web-based, and on-site surveys with randomly selected New York State homeowners, residential tenants, and multifamily property owners and managers. The study will gather data on structure type, heating and cooling systems, lighting, appliances, and electronics for different types of homes across the state. For additional information regarding this study, please see the Frequently Asked Questions.

NYSERDA competitively selected Tetra Tech, an independent research firm to conduct the study. NYSERDA and your utility company may use this information to plan and design energy efficiency programs to better help New Yorkers meet their energy needs and manage their energy costs. Please be assured that the information you provide will be kept confidential to the extent permitted by law. NYSERDA’s analysis will not identify individual respondents or firms.

If you have received a letter in the mail with an ID number and would like to take the web-based survey now, please visit: energystudy.nyserda.ny.gov/Link opens in new window - close new window to return to this page..
