New York State Introduces Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates Program

New York State Leading the Way in Energy Efficiency

New Funding Program for Low-Income Families

New York State is making strides in energy efficiency with the launch of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates (HEAR) Program. This initiative, funded by a $39.6 million grant, aims to help low-income families enhance their homes with energy-efficient upgrades. These improvements not only reduce energy costs but also contribute to the state’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 85% by 2050.

Expanding clean energy Investments

By expanding the reach of the EmPower+ program, New York State is paving the way for cleaner energy solutions. The IRA Home Energy Rebate programs are set to receive a total of $317.7 million in funding, with a significant portion allocated to the HEAR program. This funding will support various energy efficiency and electrification improvements in households across the state.

Empowering Homeowners with Incentives

Eligible homeowners in New York State can benefit from IRA HEAR incentives by participating in the EmPower+ program. These incentives, provided through EmPower+ contractors, aim to make energy efficiency upgrades more accessible and affordable.

Future Plans for Energy Rebates

NYSERDA is actively working on expanding the HEAR program to include moderate-income residents and owners of larger multifamily buildings. These developments will enable more homeowners to access rebates for high-efficiency electric appliances, further promoting energy savings and sustainability.
