Better Buildings By Design

A 'Better Building' will:

  • Enhance your building's image
  • Require less long-term maintenance and repairs
  • Provide greater tenant comfort and public safety
  • Increase energy efficiency & rental values
  • Increase resale value

NYSERDA Increases Incentives

New credits are available for energy efficient buildings

A joint initiative between Con Edison and NYSERDA is underway to improve energy efficiency. Building owners and managers, as well as third party developers acting on behalf of the building owner/manager, will be eligible for financial incentives based on their demand reduction for energy efficiency and demand management projects. Buildings that meet all the criteria, and which are also eligible for incentives through an already existing Con Edison or NYSERDA program, will receive a combination of both incentives.  

Projects must be completed prior to June 1, 2016

Project Current Incentive/kW EDMP Incentive/kW Total Benefit/kW
Thermal Storage  $600 $2,000 $2,600
Battery Storage $600 $1,500 $2,100
Chiller/HVAC/BMS/ Controls $0.16/kWh $1,250 $0.16/kWh + $1,250/kW
Lighting/LED $0.16/kWh $800 $0.16/kWh+ $800/kW
DR Enablement $200 $600 $800
Fuel Switching Steam AC Program   $500 - $1,000
CHP Incentives have not changed   See PON 2701 or PON 2568

Act early. The first to install will be the first to be paid. Our engineers can evaluate your building(s) for eligibility and work with you from the initial application process through completion of the project.

Large projects get greater incentives

Load Reduction Additional Incentives
Projects over 500kW Additional 10% of base incentive
Projects over 1MW Additional 15% of base incentive


The future closure of Indian Point Energy Center may cause energy shortages and increase the potential for brown outs. You must act.
