NYSERDA will hold a virtual public information session to gather input on the proposed programs for New York’s implementation of the federal Inflation Reduction Act’s (IRA) Home Energy Rebate programs: the Home Efficiency Rebates (HER) Program and Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates (HEAR) Program.
NYSERDA, on behalf of New York State, is applying to receive funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to implement these programs. Once the funding is received, the rebates will become available to New York State residents. DOE released initial program guidelines for states in late July 2023 and NYSERDA is following these guidelines to develop a proposal to DOE for implementation of the funding available through the IRA. The implementation of these programs will assist in upgrading and modernizing buildings across New York State and support the State’s nation-leading Climate Act goals.
This pre-proposal webinar will provide an overview of the IRA Home Energy Rebate programs, implementation considerations, and how these programs can incentivize the transition to a cleaner, more efficient and resilient building stock and deliver benefits to residents and businesses, specifically those that are located in disadvantaged communities. The webinar will present an opportunity for the public to provide input on program design considerations and features.
