More

Select an expert. Hire a NYSERDA-qualified Multifamily Building Solutions Provider.

Obtain an assessment. Your Provider performs an on-site energy assessment of your property and develops a scope of work to reach at least 20% energy savings, then you decide which upgrades to invest in.

Approve your scope of work. NYSERDA will review the scope and work with your Provider to ensure feasibility of recommended upgrades, verify projected energy savings, and confirm the incentives your project is eligible to receive.

Earn your construction incentive. Your Provider will work with you on the installation of the scope. NYSERDA will confirm the upgrades are properly installed so that they will reduce your energy costs and you can receive the incentive.

Earn your performance incentive. 12 months after upgrades are installed, NYSERDA will verify the energy savings and pay the incentive if at least 20% energy savings are achieved.
