The Green Jobs - Green New York (GJGNY) Program provides residential, small businesses, not-for-profits, and multi-family building owners with access to energy assessments, installation services, low-cost financing (currently for residential customers only), and “green jobs” workforce training. For residential customers, NYSERDA's Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program offers loans offer up to $13,000 per household, up to $25,000 if the project meets higher cost-effectiveness standards and have repayment periods of 5, 10, or 15 years. Programs for small businesses, not-for-profits and multifamily building owners (coming soon) can finance energy efficiency upgrades with low interest payments conveniently built into one energy bill and offset the payment with the savings earned over the year.
Regional Economic Development and GHG Reduction
The Regional Economic Development and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reduction Program will provide cost-share funding up to $12,000,000 for energy efficiency, renewable energy, and/or carbon abatement projects that address the regional priorities of the Regional Economic Development Councils (REDCs), result in strategic investments, and build the capacity within the region to participate in the State's clean energy economy.
Cleaner Greener Communities (CGC)
CGC encourages communities to adopt regional growth strategies that are environmentally sustainable by providing resources for regional sustainability plans and for implementation of smart growth and other sustainability activities that will reduce GHG emissions, improve energy efficiency, support renewable energy and deploy carbon abatement technologies.
