We use a number of diagnostic tools during the home assessment. Some of the tools that we use are:
Incentives and Financing
The Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® program offers valuable financial incentives and low-interest financing that help make energy efficiency improvements more affordable.
The 10% cashback incentive
When you complete energy efficiency upgrades through the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program, you will be eligible to receive 10 percent of the cost of eligible upgrades back (up to a maximum of $3,000) after the work is complete. Your contractor can help you verify that your upgrades qualify for this incentive.
Assisted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR grants
Depending on household income you can qualify for a grant of up to $5,000 to cover up to 50 percent of the cost of energy efficiency upgrades. In most New York State counties, a family of four with a household income up to about $65,000 will qualify. Two- to four-unit residential buildings with additional income-eligible households can qualify for a grant of up to $10,000.
NYSERDA offers two of low-interest loans options:
Option 1: On-Bill Recovery Loans
An On-Bill Recovery Loan allows you to have your loan payments built into your utility bill. You’ll have no extra bills each month and nothing new to keep track of. Even better: your monthly payments will be calculated not to exceed the expected amount your energy upgrades will save you on energy costs. So your energy savings cover most or all of your payment.
Option 2: Smart Energy Loans
Smart Energy Loans offer affordable interest rates, flexible terms and simple repayment options. Paying for a Smart Energy Loan is similar to any other conventional loan. You make monthly payments to NYSERDA’s loan servicer by check or automatic bank withdrawals.
