Financial Incentives- Rebates Up To $10,000

High Efficiency Measurement Incentive (HEMI)
Everyone can get the 10% HEMI rebate on qualifying energy efficiency measures. 

Assisted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Program
Households with an income equal to or lower than 80% of state or area median income, whichever is greater, can receive financial incentives through Assisted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR®. That's an income of nearly $66,000 a year for a family of 4 in NYC.

Your annual income will be verified using pay stubs with year-to-date earnings and other appropriate documentation. If you are income-eligible, you may receive assistance to cover up to 50% of the cost of energy improvements. Contact Energy Finance Solutions at 1-800-361-5663 to see if you are eligible.

Household income is defined as total cash receipts before taxes from all sources. Income eligibility is based on the past twelve (12) months of total household income.

2-4 Family Building Owners: Assisted Home Performance with ENERGY STAR will perform work in 2-4 unit buildings where either the owner is income qualified and occupies one of the units, or tenants are income-qualified.

An income qualified owner that occupies a unit in a 2-4 unit building can receive a subsidy of up to $5,000 for the whole building without any income verification required for the tenants. A higher subsidy, up to a total of $10,000 per building, may be available if tenants also are income eligible. Use the following chart to determine the level of subsidy and count the income-eligible and occupying owner as an income eligible unit.

The subsidy is available for whole-house, insulation, and heating system improvements, according to the following chart, up to the maximum cap described above:

50%/$5,000

30%/$6,000

20%/$4,000

15%/$3,000

Thus if only you qualify, you would get 50% with a limit of $5000.  If both you and all your tenants qualify, you would still get the 50%, but up to $10,000.  If you do not qualify, but your tenants do, you would receive 15-45% up to $3000-$9000.  (See chart above).
