It’s a Program

NYC Clean Heat provides resources to help buildings convert to the cleanest heating fuels as soon as possible. Whether you need help understanding your conversion options, coordinating with utilities, or assembling financing, we can assist you. Contact NYC Clean Heat today.

It’s the law

In April of 2011, the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) issued regulations that will require buildings to convert from heavy forms of heating oil to cleaner fuels, beginning in July of 2012. The goal of NYC Clean Heat is to encourage and assist buildings in converting to the cleanest available fuels. 

It Saves Lives

NYC Clean Heat’s goal is to achieve a 50 percent reduction in fine particulate matter (PM2.5) emissions from buildings burning heavy oil by the end of 2013. Achieving this goal will result in 120 lives saved each year and prevent hundreds of emergency room visits and hospitalizations for respiratory and cardiovascular conditions.
