NYS Resources

Unwaste NY


The Unwaste NY website contains information, resources, and tools for New Yorkers to learn about energy use and set a personal goal to reduce energy waste. You can find out how to reduce your energy waste by modifying everyday behaviors, and making some easy changes to your home. You can find financial incentives and rebate programs to help you save money as you make changes to save energy. You can even create a custom plan to unwaste your home, and connect with other New Yorkers, in the Unwaste Network, who are doing the same 

New York State Energy Research and Development Authority

NYSERDA is a tremendous resource for any residence, business, or municipality striving to reduce their energy consumption or considering building a new green building or retrofitting an existing one.  NYSERDA has the tools to help.
