The new targets for investor-owned utilities are expected to attract roughly $2 billion in market-enabling investments to help transform the way New York residents and businesses heat and cool their homes and offices and move towards cleaner and healthier buildings and communities statewide.
Combined with other State initiatives, the new targets are expected to deliver a 3 pct reduction in annual electric usage and a 1.3 pct cut in annual natural gas usage by 2025.
Together with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the New York Power Authority (NYPA), the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) and a previous PSC order on efficiency, New York State in energy efficiency and clean heat investments from 2020 through 2025 will total $6.8 billion.
