Information for Installers

Sustainable Westchester launched EnergySmart Westchester in 2019. Since then, approximately 550 homeowners have enrolled in our first two community campaigns. The objective of EnergySmart Westchester is to significantly ramp up the rate of clean heating and cooling system adoption and energy efficiency in Westchester while displacing fossil-fuel-based heating and cooling systems. The campaign had reached the halfway mark in the overall project timeline and Sustainable Westchester invites new contractors to apply and join the campaign efforts. Due to a demand for heat pumps and energy efficiency upgrades, Westchester is in need of more contractors to serve this area.

A successful EnergySmart Westchester Campaign will leverage committed and well-connected volunteers and community leaders, particularly in identifying creative and effective ways to get the word out to their community about EnergySmart Westchester.
The selected Installer(s) will be the sole recipients of customer leads through EnergySmart Westchester and will be actively promoted by the community as EnergySmart Westchester’s competitively selected Installer(s).

Note on Eligibility:

Installer candidates must meet the requirements for a participating Installer in all relevant NYSERDA programs.

  • Heat pump contractors must be approved as a Participating Contractor with Con Edison, NYSEG and/or the NYS Clean Heat Statewide Program.
  • Weatherization contractors must meet eligibility requirements for or be approved as a participating Installer in relevant NYSERDA program opportunities, including: Single Family Residential, Comfort Home Pilot, Assisted Home Performance with Energy Star or Empower.
