Several changes to the incentives and interest rates available were made in 2016. Program Announcements from earlier in 2017 have outlined some additional changes to the project workflows.
NYSERDA is working to merge the administration of the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR and EmPower New York Programs to provide a more seamless experience for customers as they seek to qualify for incentives based on their income. NYSERDA will also align program technical and performance standards to meet requirements of the national Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® program.
This would mean one customer application and one work scope submittal and approval for the contractor. More details will become available on these changes throughout 2017 via Program Announcements and webinars.
