The Power Authority brings world-class expertise and deep local knowledge to designing, installing, commissioning and financing projects for energy efficiency, carbon reduction goals, resiliency and distributed energy. We have worked on more than 2,100 projects, saving customers hundreds of millions of dollars in energy costs and improving both energy resiliency and productivity.

NYPA's energy efficiency program continues to grow to support New York State's energy goals. NYPA has plans to finance and implement more than $1.5 billion in energy efficiency measures throughout New York State up through 2025 at state, local and municipal government facilities, continuing to develop its program to $300 million annually. The energy efficiency measures include heat pumps, new high efficiency boiler replacements, updated controls, HVAC upgrades that will reduce natural gas consumption and related clean energy solutions.

In addition, NYPA is providing free heat pump screening assessments for NYPA customers and undertaking demonstration projects for electric heat pump solutions with its customers. NYPA is also leading by example in collaboration with SUNY to drive toward higher efficiency buildings and achieve SUNY's greenhouse gas emission reduction goals, and working hand-in-hand with the New York City Housing Authority to upgrade old heating systems through turnkey services and financing.



We have a long-standing relationship with SUNY, developing and implementing energy efficiency projects over the past 20 years. Through the NYPA Energy Efficiency program, SUNY has invested $283M to complete 123 projects that have resulted in annual energy savings of $22.6 million and 1.01 TBtu.

Our foundation is in performing deep energy efficiency retrofits throughout New York State. As customer needs have changed, we have expanded our offerings to include new turnkey services such as the solar plus storage installation at SUNY New Paltz, and the deep sub-metering being conducted at State facilities using NYPA’s New York Energy Manager (NYEM). Our expertise, combined with low-cost financing has positioned the Power Authority as the market leader in the State, enabling comprehensive clean energy solutions.

SUNY Clean Energy Roadmap & Plan

SUNY Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson is leading from the front and inspiring a shared energy vision across SUNY campuses. NYPA and other state agencies are working in collaboration to support SUNY in realizing its vision.

NYPA has the expertise to be a financing and delivery partner for Physical Improvements, Operational Tactics and Workforce Development in the SUNY Strategic Energy Plan. Services that are most relevant to SUNY’s goals include:

  • Implementing energy conservation measures for existing buildings to save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Procuring clean energy through the development of new renewable energy generation sources
  • Hardening existing infrastructure through the development of microgrids
  • Greening SUNY’s fleet by strategically siting and building out electric vehicle infrastructure
Many of these services are eligible for NYPA’s low-cost financing which will lower out-of-pocket expenses for campuses.
