NYSERDA’s Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Program Reaches Major Milestone: 50,000 Energy-Saving Projects Completed
Publication: Real Estate Rama
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) today announced the achievement of a major milestone for its Home Performance with ENERGY STAR (Home Performance) Program with the completion of the program’s 50,000th project at a Rochester area home.
The Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program, founded in 2001, provides free comprehensive home energy assessments, incentives and low-interest loans to help homeowners reduce home energy use and costs.
The 50,000th project was at the Rochester area home of Joe and Christina Morabito and their three children where Christina runs a family day care program registered through The Childcare Council. The Morabitos have lived in their 1940s two-story, four-bedroom home for six years. The inside temperature of the house varied as it was cold in some areas, and hot in other areas, and the Morabitos wanted to lower their energy bills. They had a free home energy assessment conducted by Home Comfort Heating & Cooling (a division of All Star Energy), a participating contractor in the NYSERDA Home Performance program.
