Westchester Clean Energy Action Plan

The Westchester Clean Energy Action Plan provides relief for businesses and residents affected by Con Edison’s gas announcement. As part of this plan, the State will offer new clean energy incentives and investments to:

  • Lower energy costs for consumers.
  • Promote economic development in Westchester County.
  • Deliver additional resources for new construction projects, energy efficiency awareness, and community support.

The Westchester Clean Energy Action Plan includes the following incentives and programs offered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA):

New Construction: $28 million in incentives and services will be available to new customers, including low- to moderate-income residential developments and waitlisted natural gas customers, to access alternative heating and cooling systems and energy efficiency services.

Energy Efficiency: $25 million in investments to implement energy efficiency measures for existing customers in Westchester to reduce overall peak demand constraints.

Community Outreach: A consumer awareness campaign will help communities, businesses, and individuals access the available programs and incentives to help them heat their homes with clean resources and reduce energy waste. Beginning in April, NYSERDA will sponsor sustainable and clean energy community workshops in collaboration with Westchester County.

  • NYSERDA will sponsor the New York Sustainable Energy Expo and Trade Show, a Westchester County Clean Energy Conference, in Tarrytown on April 24, 2019. The workshop will bring developers and owners of large buildings together with clean energy service providers.

NYSERDA is also increasing its support for the Sustainable Westchester Clean Heating Campaign. The campaign will expand the scope of HeatSmart Westchester—a community-level initiative designed to facilitate adoption of fossil-free heating and cooling solutions, such as ground source and air source heat pumps, as well as high-efficiency building envelope measures.

Additionally, Con Edison is deploying $165 million toward heat pumps and increasing gas efficiency in the Westchester area to support residential, multifamily, and commercial and industrial customers. The New York Power Authority (NYPA) is offering an additional $32 million in low-cost financing services to its Westchester customers.
