EmPower New York is a program that offers free energy efficiency services and energy saving tips to income-eligible New Yorkers.

  • Lower your energy bills
  • Save money—to spend on what matters most to you

When I first found about this program I really couldn’t believe the amount that we could get for free. $4500 worth of work. It didn’t cost us a thing. I still can’t believe it. If somebody came up to me and asked if this is for real, I’d say absolutely. And I would definitely recommend Standard Insulating and the EmPower program.
