Energy Efficiency Incentives

There are already a number of financial incentives for homeowners and small businesses looking to install energy efficient systems. As I blogged about last week, the Recovery Act looks to enhance and add to the existing programs.

To locate financial incentives by state, check out the Database for State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency. Incentives are listed for Federal and State programs, including lists specifically for homeowners.

If you’re seriously looking to install a photovoltaic system, NYSERDA offers a Solar Electric (PV) System Costs and Savings Calculator . You enter your zip code, your monthly electrical bill, and the size of the system you’d like to install. It will estimate installation costs, and add up the tax credits you could expect to receive.

To keep up with how the Recovery Act will affect energy savings programs, sign up for NYSERDA's Economic Stimulus Updates LISTSERV.
