This program advances New York State’s nation-leading climate and clean energy goals under the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (Climate Act). The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has awarded over $9 million to support over 20 HeatSmart Community Campaigns throughout the state which conduct community outreach and education efforts to inform residents about the benefits of heat pumps, home energy efficiency improvements and other clean energy technologies.

Free consultations, matching funds, incentives, and tax credits are available for program participants. Families that are eligible for HEAP could qualify for free weatherization of their home.

Anyone interested in receiving more information or signing up for the program can contact Erica Herman at heatsmartflxs@cornell.edu or (607) 535-7161 x3223.

The mission of HeatSmart FLX South is to provide equitable access to weatherization and energy efficiency upgrades, with the goal of households and small businesses adopting heat pump heating and cooling equipment to lower energy cost burdens for consumers and greenhouse gas emissions in our communities. HeatSmart FLX South is a new program based at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County, serving residents, small businesses, and non-profits in Schuyler, Seneca, Steuben, and Yates Counties, in cooperation with their local Extension associations.
