Energy Savings Programs
EmPower+ Income-Eligible Weatherization Program
The EmPower+ program provides no-cost energy-efficiency solutions to income-eligible New Yorkers. This program is offered through a partnership with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). Eligibility is based on your household size and annual household income (see guidelines below).
|Household Size||Maximum Gross Monthly Income||Maximum Gross Annual Income|
The current income guidelines for EmPower New York are set at 60% of the state median income.
Whether you own your home or rent, a participating contractor will complete a no-cost home energy assessment to identify if your home would benefit from free energy upgrades such as:
- Installation of high-efficiency lighting
- Attic and wall insulation
- Replacement of old, inefficient refrigerators and freezers
- Water-saving showerheads
National Grid Energy Efficiency Rebate Programs

Solar for All
With Solar for All from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), income-eligible households can subscribe to community solar at no cost. Program participants receive monthly credits on their electricity bills—up to $15 a month—and there are no upfront costs, fees or payments to participate.
Participation does not affect any existing electric bill credit or reduction you have. You may already be eligible for Solar for All if you participate in HEAP (Home Energy Assistance Program), SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), EmPower+ New York or another electric bill assistance program.
