Homeowner Success Story: Jess Bernstein

Jess Bernstein qualified for the EmPower New York Program, which provides free energy efficiency services for qualified residents.
"I owe you, RUPCO Green Jobs - Green New York, Global Dwelling, and the NYS EmPower program an enormous debt of gratitude. The auditor from EmPower came to assess the work Global Dwelling did, improving my house's efficiency. The insulation they put in decreased the air flow out of my house by almost 50%!
More importantly, it's now a chilly 32 degrees outside. It's been snowing and raining on and off for the past 24 hours, and the wind was howling like crazy all afternoon. The only heat source I've had on is my pellet stove, which is set to 61 degrees, yet the thermostat in my living room reads a toasty 70. The new insulation is like a blanket wrapped around my house; now I don't have to walk around the house wearing one myself (plus a hat, three layers of clothing, and down booties). Not only will this save me a boatload of money, it has already vastly improved my quality of life. I can't thank you enough."
Another NYSERDA Program, the Assisted Home Performance with Energy Star Subsidy, provides a 50% discount on installation of qualifying energy efficiency upgrades up to $4,000 for single family homes and up to $8,000 for 2-4 unit homes.
