Awarded Sustainable Energy Resources for Consumers Projects

Awarded SERC projects total $5.1 million. View the details of the recipients below.

New York

The New York State Homes and Community Renewal (HCR) Office of Housing Preservation will install heat pump water heaters, air source heat pumps, solar photovoltaic, and geothermal technologies on weatherization units, working particularly in opportunity zones and with Native American tribes.  

New Mexico

The New Mexico Weatherization Assistance Program is transforming WAP Projects into Grid Efficient Buildings by installing solar photovoltaic, battery energy storage systems, heat pump water heaters, air source heat pumps, and building energy management systems in multifamily projects. Project work will be focused in opportunity zones is expected to improve home energy performance by at least 30% over baseline.  


The Minnesota Weatherization Assistance Program will prepare weatherization participants for the changing climate by outfitting homes with prefabricated exterior expanded polystyrene (EPS) walls. Minnesota is focusing its work in historically redlined districts in Hennepin County, Minnesota, and particularly engaging census tracts with a high Social Vulnerability Index. 


The Pennsylvania Weatherization Assistance Program is demonstrating that additional energy savings can be achieved in weatherized homes through expanding energy saving materials and technologies, specifically hybrid water heaters. The project will target five census tracts that are Opportunity Zones and underserved rural communities (USDA-designated towns) in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania 


The Massachusetts Weatherization Assistance Program will install air-source heat pump technology in combination with the traditional components of full-scale weatherization measures at each project dwelling unit. The project will target Municipal Utility service territories and Gateway Cities facing social and economic challenges. Historically underserved due to lack of utility funds for low-income retrofits.
