P-12 Schools: Green and Clean Energy Solutions

 

The P-12 Schools: Green and Clean Energy Solutions Program provides funding for eligible pre-kindergarten through grade 12 (P-12) schools to reduce school energy use and assist in the conversion to carbon free fuels.

The program provides cost-sharing for energy studies to reduce energy use, and cost-sharing for clean heating and cooling and net zero design.

How It Works

Energy Studies

Cost-sharing for energy studies is available to investigate opportunities to reduce energy use and/or evaluate potential conversion to carbon free fuels. A cost share of up to 75% of the study cost is available.

Cost-sharing is capped at $150,000 per study application.

Schools may work with their own consultant or choose from NYSERDA’s FlexTech Consultant list.
