EmPower-Geographic Eligibility

EmPower New York provides no-cost energy efficiency solutions to income-eligible New Yorkers. Nearly 160,000 of your neighbors are saving energy and saving money with EmPower New York — without spending a dime. To streamline and simplify the application process, NYSERDA uses a geographic eligibility determination to qualify households for no-cost services.

Using the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Income Block Data, NYSERDA has identified Census Block Groups where census data reports that 50% or more of the population of the Census Block Group have a household income that would qualify them for services through EmPower.
