EmPower+ Application


The EmPower+ Application allows low- to moderate-income residents to apply for energy efficiency incentives. This program is available for both owners and renters of 1-to-4 family homes.

Through EmPower+, eligible households can receive:

  1. No-cost home energy assessments
  2. Direct install improvements, which are energy efficiency improvements installed at no cost during the home energy assessment.
  3. Incentives toward making your home more comfortable and energy efficient.

When you apply for the program, you will have the opportunity to select a program contractor or the program can assign one for you. If you are working with a NYSERDA energy advisor, you will be able to select them, and they will be able to follow the progress of your application and project.

To increase participation, NYSERDA has made available an income eligibility screening tool, which uses a household's geographic location. If your home is located in a pre-screened area, there is no need to submit income documentation as part of the application. See if you are in a geographically eligible pre-screened territory.
