New York ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes

More than an energy-efficiency program, our Low-rise Residential New Construction Program gives builders the opportunity to offer a New York ENERGY STAR Certified Home in the competitive home building market. This Program allows you to earn financial support for building homes to a higher energy performance standard. And that’s not all. It also gives you the advantage of marketing support and potentially qualifying for cooperative advertising funds, and tax incentives depending on energy efficiency level achieved.
