Ask for Clean Heat

Welcome to NYC Clean Heat


Welcome to NYC Clean Heat

NYC Clean Heat was created by the City of New York in 2012 to address the public health hazard presented by heavy heating oil emissions. Between 2012 and 2015, NYC Clean Heat resulted in nearly 6,000 heating oil conversions from No. 6 or No.4 oil to a cleaner fuel. As a result, PM 2.5 emissions from buildings previously burning these heavy heating oils have been reduced by 65% since 2011.

NYC Clean Heat has transitioned into the NYC Retrofit Accelerator, New York City's one-stop resource to help building owners and operators increase the value and sustainability of their properties through energy and water upgrades.
