We will guide you through every step of the process, from your Free or Reduced Cost Comprehensive Home Assessment or Energy Audit, to accessing incentives and financing offered by the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority (NYSERDA), to working with BPI Goldstar Contractor Innovation Now to install energy efficiency improvements such as insulation, air sealing and heating system upgrades.
