On-site Energy Manager Program

Having an empowered, on-site energy manager can help commercial and industrial facilities actively manage their energy use and lower costs through energy efficiency and optimization. The purpose of this program is to demonstrate the value of a dedicated on-site energy manager that will, with respect to energy:

  • Identify, diagnose, and prescribe areas for improvement
  • Engage in strategic planning, feasibility studies, awareness communications, data collection and reporting
  • Drive managerial and behavioral changes
  • Provide leadership and organizational continuity for implementing change
  • Account for a facility’s approach to energy efficiency and productivity improvements
  • Work effectively with cross-functional teams and senior management.

Who it Will Help

This program allows commercial and industrial companies the opportunity to become accustomed to energy management with minimal risk by providing cost share support. 

Who Can Apply

New York State commercial and industrial facilities that do not currently have a dedicated, full time energy manager on-site and who pay the electric System Benefits Charge (SBC) can apply to this program.

Applicants must desire to continue the on-site energy manager role after the program ends and be willing to publicly share the results and lessons learned during the project.
