The majority of customers in Central Hudson’s service territory heat their homes with fuel oil and propane; transitioning customers to beneficial heating provides one of the biggest opportunities to reduce carbon emissions for customers. Central Hudson is looking for innovative beneficial heating programs that inform and provide affordable heating options to customers to support carbon reduction.
The objectives of this opportunity include:
62% of Central Hudson’s 256,000 residential customers heat with fuel oil or propane and with no or limited access to natural gas.
Central Hudson is interested in partnerships that include the following elements:
The proposals should include:
The program should have the opportunity to scale to all residential customers and should also be able to be incorporated into existing customer programs.
The Beneficial Heating program will advance the REV goal to lower carbon emissions and support fuel diversity.
The proposed programs should not include elements that are duplicative of current NYSERDA programs.
