Low-Rise Multifamily Buildings

Low-rise multi-unit buildings (generally three stories or less) can earn the New York ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes designation, and builders earn incentives for every unit in a project. Dwelling units of any size, style, or price range can be designed and constructed to the standards required of a New York ENERGY STAR Certified Home, including rental units, townhomes, or condominiums.

Gut rehabilitation projects that do not qualify for the New York ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes designation may be eligible for the alternative New York Energy $mart designation, which allows access to the same NYSERDA program services and incentives.

Technical support is available from Home Energy Raters and their Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) Accredited Providers, and NYSERDA. Read the Low-rise Residential New Construction Funding Opportunity for more detailed information.
