Commercial New Construction Program

More than $19 million are available to support building owners who apply on or after March 1, 2016. Support can offset a portion of capital costs to purchase and install energy-efficient equipment that reduces energy consumption in new and substantially renovated commercial buildings in New York State.

Because early design intervention yields greater energy efficiency benefits, technical assistance is also available. NYSERDA project managers and regionally based consultants can work with building owners and their design teams to analyze efficiency opportunities for new or substantially renovated commercial buildings. Additional support for green building opportunities is also available.

Who Can Apply

Businesses, State and local governments, not-for-profit and private institutions, public and private schools, colleges and universities, and health care facilities interested in installing electric efficiency in new or substantially renovated buildings are encouraged to apply. Buildings must be served by electric utilities participating in the System Benefit Charge (SBC).

How to Apply

This program is currently closed. A new Funding Opportunity will be opening soon. Please check back for more details. To be alerted on when the new opportunity is available, please sign up to receive email updates.

Available Funds for the Commercial New Construction Program, PON 1501 and PON 1601

There are still funds available for PON 1501 and PON 1601 customers (see table below).  As the Commercial New Construction Program (NCP) is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, (i.e., until the energy analysis is complete and a formal offer has been provided to the customer), NYSERDA will update the committed incentives on a quarterly basis. 

Available funding as of 1/4/17
