- Save on Home Energy Costs -

Energy cost savings are available with the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® program through NYSERDA.   This program offers free or reduced-cost comprehensive home energy assessments, also referred to as energy audits, to income-eligible owners of 1- to 4-unit residential buildings.

 Dutchess County residents with combined household incomes of less than $175,000 annually are eligible for 100%-free energy audits from NYSERDA because of the Green Jobs  - Green New York Act of 2009.

 Interested homeowners can apply by providing summaries of the annual electric and heating usage for their buildings (utility bills listing annual usage and/or a 12-24 month summary from an oil, propane, or other heating fuel vendors.)

 Participating Building Performance Institute (BPI) Accredited Home Performance Contractors can provide a home assessment to identify energy saving opportunities, looking for repairs and upgrades such as air sealing, insulation, new boilers, etc.
