NYSERDA Energy Efficiency Programs:
NYSEG and RG&E will assist customers interested in improving the energy efficiency of their facility or operations by providing supplemental assistance to those participating in New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) energy efficiency programs.
Under NYSERDA programs for commercial and industrial businesses such as its Flexible Technical Assistance, Commercial Implementation Assistance, Industrial Process Efficiency and New Construction Program, the Company will provide supplemental assistance for an energy efficiency study/analysis and/or implementation of measures. Note: These NYSERDA programs are subject to change.
Company-Sponsored Energy Efficiency Programs:
As an alternative to providing supplemental assistance to NYSERDA’s commercial and industrial energy efficiency programs, supplemental assistance will be provided to support company-sponsored energy efficiency programs.
Support for Clean Energy:
NYSEG and RG&E will also maintain flexibility to provide supplemental assistance to energy efficiency programs that evolve through the Clean Energy Fund.
In all cases, the company will provide up to $20,000 toward a study/analysis and up to $50,000 toward implementation of measures. The customer will also be required to make a financial contribution of at least 33.33% toward total investment made.
