ENERGY EFFICIENCY BENEFITS BOTH RESIDENTS AND COMMUNITIES
In order to stay warm during long, cold winters, Adirondack North Country residents and communities spend a higher percentage on heating than much of the rest of the country. The Adirondack Park region alone spends $600 million on annual heating costs. Just 10 percent in improvements would save $60 million a year.
Adirondack North Country residents and communities spend a higher percentage of income on heating than the most of rest of the country, making the cost of energy a critically important factor in the economic viability of the region. ANCA’s energy program aims to reduce energy costs for people, businesses and communities, increase the number of energy-related jobs including contractors, auditors, and suppliers, and spur a transition to renewable energy. Whether you are a homeowner, a community leader, a business owner, a school, or a farmer, we can help you find the resources that will reduce your energy costs. If you are a contractor, we can connect you to training resources that will enable you to be certified as a NYSERDA-recommended contractor.

New York State has made major investments in helping residents and small businesses save money on energy bills, through creating cash incentives and affordable financing options for making energy efficiency upgrades. For a limited time, homeowners can take advantage of a 10 percent cash back incentive and low-interest financing for up to $25,000 in energy efficiency improvements.
The program begins with a home energy assessment, which is a top-to-bottom look at your home to figure out which improvements will save you the most money. Explore the “Programs for Homeowners” section below for more information. Or you can download the application here
