The New York State Senate has passed legislation allowing on-bill financing for home retrofits supported by the Green Jobs/Green New York program. PUSH Buffalo has been working day-in and day-out to make this legislation happen and we now await approval from the New York State Assembly. If passed by the assembly, the bill will make home retrofits much more accessible to homeowners and small businesses.
As Senator Daniel Squadron of Brooklyn/Manhattan said, “Increasing the energy efficiency of consumer products is an easy and effective way to cut families’ electricity bills and reduce greenhouse gases. This is a big win for wallets and the environment, and I thank the Senate Majority for passing this legislation.”
