New York Commits 7.5M to Clean Energy Affordable Housing

The Clean Energy Initiative announces $7.5 million in funding to create 600 energy efficient and all-electric affordable housing units in New York. The goal is to bring together highly efficient, all electric new construction as well as adaptive reuse projects to breathe carbon neutral affordable housing.

All space heating, cooling and domestic hot water appliances and equipment must be high-performance electric such as, but not limited to, air source or water source heat pumps or variable refrigerant flow (VRF) units and the buildings must achieve advanced levels of Energy Star Certification. 

This pilot project is supported as a collaborative effort between New York State Homes and Community Renewal and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). They believe this plan will help contribute to New York’s goal of an 85% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
