Energize NY works to help homeowners in NY become energy efficient, and make home “tune-ups” or “upgrades” so that they can save money, live more comfortably, and stop wasting energy. We help homeowners find state certified, energy efficiency contractors, access state incentives and financing, and finally, secure quality assurance for the completed home upgrade work. Energize NY is a community-based energy efficiency program funded through Department of Energy (DOE) and New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) grants.
