To achieve New York State’s goals for a low carbon future, NYSERDA and the New York electric utilities have partnered to offer a range of initiatives to make heat pumps more affordable and accessible. Through the program, Con-Edison offers customers incentives to reduce the upfront costs of Air-Source Heat Pumps and Ground-Source Heat Pumps for both space heating and cooling as well as for Heat Pump Water Heaters for water heating.


  • Con Edison Commercial customers, over 100 kW average peak demand on a rolling 12-month basis who pay into the EE tracker are eligible for C&I Clean Heat incentives, excluding Multifamily buildings. Commercial customers between 100-300 kW may also choose to participate with Con Edison through the Small to Medium Business (SMB) track of the NYS Clean Heat Program.
  • Customer must not have applied for or received an incentive from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), Con Edison or another utility for the same project.
  • Equipment must be installed after customer allows for a pre-installation inspection, signs and submits a signed preliminary IOL from Con Edison, and receives a Notice to Proceed from Con Edison.
  • The Con Edison customer of record listed on the application is a directly metered commercial or industrial customer.
  • Site must be occupied year-round or, in the case of planned installations at new construction sites, site owners must plan to have the site occupied year-round.
  • Heat pump projects are eligible for incentives no matter which heating fuel (e.g., fuel oil, natural gas, propane, biomass, or electricity) they are either transitioning from in the case of retrofits or declining to install in the case of new construction.
  • Heat pumps must be designed to provide domestic and service hot water heating and/or both space heating and cooling. Heat pumps that are used for space cooling only are ineligible for incentives under the NYS Clean Heat Program.

Interested customers should refer to the Program Guidelines to confirm eligibility.

How the Program Works

The first step is to find a participating contractor that will help identify appropriate equipment and install the heat pump. Con Edison will conduct a post-inspection following heat pump installation to determine the final projects savings and incentives.  Program rebates will then be deducted by the installer from the total project cost.

The Program offers 9 categories of incentives based on the specific type of heat pump technology and application. Interested customers should consult the Program Guidelines for eligible heat pump technologies and applicable incentives.
