EmPower New York: Energy Efficiency for Everyone
Everyone knows that more energy-efficient systems deliver cost savings over the long run, but the initial cost can be an insurmountable challenge for some families. Vastola Heating and Cooling is here to help. Working with EmPower New York, we are delivering more energy-efficient homes and apartments at no cost to the owners.
What is EmPower New York?
EmPower New York is a New York State program designed to help low-income families save money on their energy bills. If you qualify, a Building Performance Institute (BPI) GoldStar Contractor will evaluate whether your home could use energy-efficient upgrades. If that’s the case, the contractor will make the upgrades. You won’t have to pay for a thing.
Who is eligible?
Generally, families and individuals whose household income is less than 60% of the state median income are eligible for this program. You may also be eligible if you qualify for HEAP benefits or participate in a utility assistance program. To see the complete eligibility guidelines, visit NYSERDA’s website.
How do I get started?
Just give us a call! Vastola Heating and Cooling would be happy to help you fill out an application. We also participate in the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® program, which provides a 50% subsidy on certain home improvements to families making below 80% of the state median income. Finally, we offer low-cost financing and free energy audits, plus a 10% discount on the recommended work, to families who are not income-eligible. Call 716-800-3615 today to learn more.
