FlexTech Program

NYSERDA’s FlexTech Program offers a wide range of flexible, cost-shared technical services to help businesses operating in New York State make informed energy decisions. A dedicated team of engineers, technology experts, and energy consultants works with the customers to create a customized assessment that identifies specific opportunities for reducing energy consumption and costs. Eligible study areas are:

  • Cost-shared studies of energy efficiency technical analyses, process improvement analyses, energy master plans, and demand response opportunities of existing facilities for eligible customers
  • Cost-shared on-site combined heat and power (CHP) feasibility studies for eligible customers

Nonresidential customers with an average electric demand of 100 kW or less may be eligible for an energy assessment through the Small Commercial Energy Efficiency Program.
