We are excited to announce that the New York State Clean Heat Program is coming back this month in Con Edison territories. This program helps building owners switch to cleaner heating technologies, such as heat pumps.
The program, funded by the state and administered by the utility companies, is designed to incentivize electrification projects, reducing carbon emissions. Participants may be eligible for financial incentives and rebates to help offset the cost of upgrading their HVAC systems.
Last year, Ecosystem helped our client at the International Tailoring Company Building (ITCoB) solidify $1.4 million in incentives through the Clean Heat Program, and just under $1.7 million in total incentives. This funding allowed us to re-engineer the building’s HVAC system to tackle longstanding comfort issues and also reduce the building’s natural gas consumption by over 80%. Our dedicated incentives specialists managed the entire Clean Heat Program application process.
“Ecosystem took care of obtaining those incentives for us, from contacting the programs to securing the funding,” said Eric Einstein, co-op board president at ITCoB. “Those $1.7 million in incentives were the key that allowed us to upgrade our systems to minimize our carbon footprint while making our building a more comfortable place to live.”
Let Ecosystem help your building benefit from this opportunity to make a positive impact on the environment and your bottom line. Electrification projects can help buildings eliminate their Local Law 97 fines and potentially improve their energy grades. The window for applications opens again on January 17. Funding for the Clean Heat Program is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. We look forward to helping you make the switch to cleaner heating technologies.
