The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) announced Wednesday that a total of $1 million is available to qualified home energy contractors and home inspectors in communities including Tompkins County through a four-phase, multi-year Home Energy Rating Pilot (Pilot). The Pilot, which is targeted to one- to -four-family homes, will help homeowners who are ready to invest in their homes and are looking for independent, trustworthy energy performance information. Once approved through a competitive selection process, qualified contractors and home inspectors will provide those homeowners with home energy performance ratings including opportunities for improving their energy performance and therefore the durability, comfort and safety their home. Wednesday's announcement advances the state's efforts to meet Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's 2025 energy efficiency target of 185 trillion BTUs in energy savings and supports the Governor's Green New Deal, a nation-leading clean energy and jobs agenda that puts New York on a path to a carbon-free economy.

Alicia Barton, President and CEO, NYSERDA said, "Reducing energy use in homes is a key component to achieving Governor Cuomo's ambitious energy efficiency target and lays the foundation for greater energy savings across the state. By piloting these home energy ratings, New Yorkers will have access to a beneficial tool to identify potential high-performing energy features for their homes and prioritize areas that can be upgraded to make it more energy efficient, comfortable and lower costs."
