Clean Heating and Cooling

thumbnail for RHC Framework Policy

Heating and cooling in buildings represent 32% of New York State’s combustion-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In support of the State’s nation-leading GHG emissions reduction goals – targeting 40% reduction of GHG emissions by 2030 and 80% by 2050 – NYSERDA has developed an integrated, long-term Policy Framework [PDF] to encourage the adoption of renewable, clean heating and cooling technologies (e.g., ground- and air- source heat pump systems, and solar hot water systems).

Comfort at the community level

The Clean Heating and Cooling Communities program is getting groups of homes and businesses in New York State to install clean heating and cooling (CH&C) technologies.These technologies can help lower energy bills and reduce emissions of harmful greenhouse gases, while making homes and businesses more comfortable.
