New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) promotes energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources. Since 2001, NYSERDA has served nearly 94,000 New York homes through its Home Performance with ENERGY STAR (HPwES) program. Key accomplishments include:
- Developed an in-house, HPXML compliant modeling tool available to its participating contractors free of charge.
- Deployed a comprehensive, paid search strategy generating over 13,832 visits to the microsite and resulting in a 26 percent conversion rate from site visit to assessment request by homeowners.
- Instituted a single, 10 percent incentive to contractors for HPwES work on market-rate homes to permit more flexibility for the contractor to conduct work.
- Served over 159,000 low-income residents since inception of the EmPower New York program.
