NYS Clean Heat Statewide Heat Pump Program
Important message: As the NYS Clean Heat Statewide Heat Pump Program launches on April 1, we are discouraging all heat pump installations and on premise activity other than emergency services due to the serious and quickly evolving situation involving the COVID-19 Pandemic. National Grid will continue to work closely with our state and local partners promptly updating our informational web page, ngrid.com/covid-19 as we have additional information.
Starting April 1, 2020 the New York Electric Utilities and NYSERDA launched a collaborative effort to help achieve the New York State heat pump goals and build the market infrastructure for a low-carbon future. National Grid is proud to partner with RISE Engineering to participate in the new NYS Clean Heat Statewide Heat Pump Program, to provide customers, contractors, and other heat pump solution providers a consistent experience and business environment to encourage the adoption of efficient electric air source and ground source heat pump systems.
The program is built around incentives that support customer adoption and market development effort includes support for training and qualification of contractors, processes to assure quality installations, and marketing and education to help customers understand and select among options and to operate systems optimally.
To apply for incentives under this Program, ASHP installers, ASHP designers, GSHP installers, GSHP designers, and GSHP drillers must first become “Participating Contractors” by submitting one Participating Contractor Application indicating in which service territories they plan to perform work and a Contractor Participation Agreement for each of those specified utility territories.
