Site Eligibility

To be eligible, customers must own or manage a residential multifamily building with 5+ residential units and have an eligible Con Edison electric account.

Project Eligibility

  • The site must be occupied year-round. For new construction, the site owners must plan to have the site occupied year-round.
  • For new construction, the baseline heating fuel for space heating and domestic hot water will be determined on a case-by-case basis, based on contemporary construction practice in the area.
  • Heat pumps must be designed to provide domestic and service hot water heating and/or both space heating and cooling. Heat pumps that are used primarily for space cooling are ineligible for incentives under the NYS Clean Heat Program.
  • Heat pump projects are eligible for incentives no matter which heating fuel (e.g., fuel oil, natural gas, propane, biomass, district steam, or electricity) they are either transitioning from in the case of retrofits, or declining to include in the case of new construction.
