Resources

NYSERDA and the NYS Electric Utilities have compiled a wide variety of resources to assist the NYS Clean Heat Participating Contractor Network. The clean heating and cooling solutions offered through NYS Clean Heat will help residents, small businesses, and commercial and multifamily building owners reduce their energy usage and cost.

Training resources and opportunities will be added to this section as they become available.

Assistance from NYSERDA is available for helping to develop and retain a workforce to perform jobs in the heat pump market.
