Save Energy and Save Your Landlord Money with Solar Energy
NYSERDA offers programs to help tenants work with their landlord to reduce your energy costs, while also improving the health, comfort, and durability of your home or apartment.
If you live in a one- to four-family home, the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program will find where the house is losing energy and provide financial incentives to help the homeowner make the necessary efficiency improvements. Your landlord may not be aware of the financial benefits and value of improving the energy efficiency of their income properties. And additional financial incentives may be available for income-eligible households. Refer your property manager or landlord to a Home Performance contractor in your area or call 1-877-NY-Smart.
If you live in a building with five units or more, NYSERDA’s Multifamily Performance Program connects with building owners, property managers and other housing organizations to improve the energy efficiency of the building to reduce energy costs for tenants and provide a more comfortable living environment. This Program provides a customized approach to energy efficiency using a Multifamily Performance Partner that can guide the building owner through every step of the process.
