Who Can Apply

The Commercial Tenant Program is open to all commercial office tenants and property owners in New York State at any stage of leasing. The program encourages collaboration between tenants, property owners, and consultants to optimize the energy performance of commercial office space throughout the State. Tenants, or the building owner, must also pay the System Benefits Charge (SBC) on their electric bill. We are accepting applications for the Commercial Tenant Program on a first-come, first-served basis now through July 31, 2019.
