NYSERDA Clean Heating Rebates

Geothermal and air source heat pumps, and electric resistance can meet some, or all, of your needs, in addition to other more conventional alternatives. Commercial customers, including those that manage large residential buildings, can take interruptible gas service, which requires maintaining an alternative fuel source and the customer to stop using natural gas during extremely cold periods.

Con Edison can help customers learn about programs to advance clean heating alternatives. New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has programs that help New Yorkers increase their energy efficiency, save money, use renewable energy, and reduce reliance on fossil fuels. Con Edison also has proposed and plans to develop additional programs. We will provide additional information about these programs as they are available.

Heating equipment rebates:

  • Air Source Heat Pump An air source heat pump transfers heat between the inside of a building and the outside air while creating a more comfortable indoor environment. NYSERDA will provide participating installers with $500 per qualified air source heat pump system installed.
  • Ground Source Heat Pump A ground source heat pump transfers thermal energy between the ground and a building to heat and cool without any harmful emissions or additional fuel. NYSERDA will provide participating installers with $1,200 to $1,500 per cooling ton for qualified ground source heat pump system installed.

Call a NYSERDA representative at 518-862-1090, (866-NYSERDA) to learn more.

If you heat your home with fuel oil, propane, or natural gas, and cool it with electricity, geothermal is a smart upgrade.

And now through our partnership with Dandelion Energy, it’s never been easier—or more affordable—to switch your home over to geothermal.

We’re partnering with Dandelion Energy to offer qualified Westchester homeowners up to $5,000 off a home geothermal system. When combined with state and federal incentives, you could save tens of thousands of dollars in installation costs.
