NYSEG and RG&E
NYSEG and RG&E provide incentives up to $1050 for cold climate air source heat pumps and $500 for heat pump water heaters. Visit their incentive page or download their application. A couple of details to note: 1) this is retroactive to the beginning of 2019, and 2) if you have multiple single-zone systems installed, according to NYSEG’s energy efficiency hotline, simply submit an application for each one.
With proper financing, households on oil, propane, and resistance electric can realize significant out-of-pocket savings on their annual energy costs from day one. It is always cheaper overall to pay upfront, but not everyone has the luxury of doing so. Here are options to consider:
Rebates & Incentives Slowly Dropping in Value After 2019
