NYSERDA Green Jobs Green New York (GJGNY)

Taitem was selected by NYSERDA to provide services under a pilot program to assist customers of the energy audit program with implementing recommended energy conservation measures. This pilot is being rolled into the NYSERDA Small Commercial program, beginning January 2014. Taitem provided direct customer service as well as program-level services to NYSERDA to help implement this program. During the pilot, Taitem reached out to about 200 small businesses, not-for-profits, and community organizations. Services ranged from a simple phone call to check that the building owner has a plan for implementation to extensive post-audit assistance. We assist the owner with financing options, including help understanding the process and the financing application or other paperwork. We follow up to ensure that implementation is happening as planned, with site visits or communication by telephone or email as appropriate. We have helped many business owners eliminate barriers to implementing energy- and cost-saving measures.
