New York was one of the first states to establish a statewide systems benefits charge to support energy efficiency and other public benefits energy programs. Programs are administered in a combination of ways — through New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and through its electric and natural gas utility companies. Public Service Electric and Gas (PSEG-LI) also offers energy efficiency programs to its Long Island customers separately from the EEPS programs.
The New York Department of State set the residential energy code to IECC 2009, with NY modifications, and its commercial code to IECC 2009 with NY modifications or ASHRAE 90.1-2007. New York remains one of the few states in the region to actively assess code compliance in order to target energy code training within the state.
