Information for Installers

Sustainable Westchester launched EnergySmart HOMES in 2019. Since then, approximately 550 homeowners have enrolled in our first two community campaigns. The objective of EnergySmart HOMES is to significantly ramp up the rate of clean heating and cooling system adoption and energy efficiency in Westchester while displacing fossil-fuel-based heating and cooling systems.

A successful EnergySmart HOMES Campaign will leverage committed and well-connected volunteers and community leaders, particularly in identifying creative and effective ways to get the word out to their community about EnergySmart HOMES.

The selected Installer(s) will be the sole recipients of customer leads through EnergySmart HOMES and will be actively promoted by the community as EnergySmart HOMES competitively selected Installer(s).
