With the passage of New York’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act in 2019 and additional federal legislation in 2021 and 2022 – including the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) – New York State residents, businesses and communities have access to numerous new opportunities in the clean energy economy, including clean energy careers, building improvements, and rebates for businesses. NYSERDA established the Regional Clean Energy Hubs to help New Yorkers navigate and access these varied opportunities.


The Mid-Hudson Regional Clean Energy Hub is open to all curious individuals and businesses within the Mid-Hudson region.

How the Program Works

NYSERDA established twelve (12) regional Hubs to serve different regions of the state. NYSERDA designated Mid-Hudson Energy Choices – a collaboration between Cornell Cooperative Extension, Sustainable Westchester, New Yorkers for Clean Power, and numerous local partners – as the Mid-Hudson Regional Clean Energy Hub.

Mid-Hudson Energy Choices serves Duchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester Counties. The experts involved with the Hub aim to promote alternative energy generation from solar, clean heating from heat pumps, and various energy efficiency upgrade methods for homes and businesses. Interested residents and businesses can contact Mid-Hudson Energy Choices for such tasks as:

  • Assistance with accessing job training and employment in the clean energy sector.
  • Exploring what types of energy incentives a person or business may qualify for.
  • Obtaining information about electric vehicles (EV), EV charging stations and rebates, heat pumps, solar energy, and weatherproofing.
