self-direct energy efficiency program

Your funds, your way!


Our new Self-Direct Energy Efficiency program is designed to encourage cost-effective energy management measures tailored to qualifying customers’ business needs.


This program is open to NYSEG nonresidential commercial, industrial and institutional customers with a 36-month average electricity demand of 2 megawatts or greater, or with a multiple-account 36-month average demand of 4 megawatts or greater, provided one or more of the accounts has a 36-month average demand of at least 1 megawatt.


If you are eligible, you decide how to use the funds in an Energy Savings Account to make effective energy efficiency investments of your choice over three years beginning January 1, 2017.

The benefits of participating in this program include:

  • An Energy Savings Account established just for you.
  • Flexibility in determining the best energy efficiency projects to suit your needs.
  • Reduced electricity costs.

The enrollment period for the 2017-2019 program opens May 1, 2016, and closes September 30, 2016.
