Assisted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Program


Each year, New York State homeowners waste hundreds of dollars in energy. Many feel powerless in the face of high energy bills and are unaware of what they can do to control these costs. The Assisted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program makes it easy and affordable to make the smart investment in a more energy-efficient home, helping income-eligible homeowners across the State lower their energy bills and live more comfortably all year long.

It provides those who qualify with a discount covering 50% of the cost of eligible energy efficiency improvements up to $5,000 per project for single-family homes. Two- to four-unit residential homes with income-eligible residents may qualify for a discount of up to $10,000. The program is available for both renters and owners. Learn more about benefits for two- to four-unit residential homes.

It all starts with completing an application to see if you are income eligible. Once you are determined eligible, then the next step is working with a trained and experienced participating program contractor to schedule a home energy assessment. The assessment provides you with a top-to-bottom look at where your home is wasting energy. You will learn the root cause of any drafts, inconsistent temperatures, heating and cooling system failures, or other problems you may be experiencing.
