New York receives $123 million in DOE funding

DOE approved New York's state energy plan for energy efficient buildings and stricter building codes.

07/07/2009


New York Gov. David Paterson announced that the U.S. Dept. of Energy has approved New York's plan for federal stimulus funding through the State Energy Program (SEP) of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The $123 million SEP plan will allow the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority ( NYSERDA ) to provide additional financial support for the installation of energy efficiency measures and renewable energy systems across the state. It is the fourth most expensive SEP plan thus far, after California, Texas, and Florida.

The majority of this money will be used on grants for nonresidential buildings to install energy efficiency measures and renewable energy systems. Projects may include lighting, HVAC, motor, and building envelope measures; geothermal heat and power installations; and solar thermal and photovoltaic systems.

NYSERDA will also support Gov. Paterson's effort to adopt more stringent energy codes for buildings. Various implementation and support services will be available to the entire building community, including local jurisdictions charged with implementation of the state energy code. Architects, engineers, and homebuilders will work aggressively to achieve at least 90% compliance in the commercial and residential sectors.
