Rate analysis and aggregation support, including preparing customers for power marketers and evaluating baseline energy consumption, load profiles, and rates.
Energy operations management projects that can include developing energy strategies for facilities, identifying operational improvements, commissioning, and technical training.
NYSERDA grants will fund no more than half of a project's costs and are open only to customers of Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp., Consolidated Edison Co., New York State Electric and Gas Corp., Niagara Mohawk Power Corp., and Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc.
