Utilities/NYSERDA File Incentives Plan March 23 2020

As of April 1, NYS utilities will take over heat pump incentive programs. They have been assigned targets for energy savings through heat pump installations and funding to provide incentives.

Please see the Implementation Plan here, the new Program Manual here, a table showing new incentive levels here. (NOTE: this table omits LIPA territory as the PSEG LI incentives remain the same.) Incentive changes are a mixed bag—up in some utility territories and effectively down in others.

The program manual does NOT require a local permit to be filed as part of the rebate application. Many of our members have found permits to be inaccessible in many locations and this had been causing severe problems for them.
