Introduction

The Combined Residential Application is intended to streamline the application process while broadening the scope of services approved Applicants are eligible for. The application can be accessed by navigating to nyserda.ny.gov/ahp-empower. Applicants can access and complete the application online (an Application Portal Account is required) or print, sign and mail in a paper application.

Applicants can receive assistance from Participating Contractors and/or Community Organizations when completing an application.

titleWhy Complete an Application Online?

Faster, Safer, and More Accurate:

  • Its the fastest path for reviewing and approving an AHP or EmPower applicant.
  • Reduces or prevents incomplete, incorrect or missing information in the application.
  • Sensitive documents (proof of income, utility bills) in any format (pdf, photo) are uploaded securely.
  • Applicants can provide an e-signature rather than a physical one.
  • Approved applications automatically and seamlessly upload into Uplight to auto-create projects.

More Control:

  • Applicants can choose their own Contractor if they own the property referenced in the application.
  • Applicants can start, stop and return to the application at anytime which is helpful if1:

The application cannot be completed in one setting,

Additional time is needed to gather required and/or supporting documents or information

More Reliable Communications:

  • NYSERDA staff can leverage the online application to quickly reach out to applicants directly for missing documentation or information.
  • The system the application is built around provides timely, automated reminders and notifications to applicants when communication is necessary.

Reminders are sent at day 10, 20, and 30 once an application has been initiated.

Manual cancellation of the application occurs at day 30.

With the Combined Residential Applications, CLEAResult Shared Services, Contractors, Participating Utilities, and Community Organizers can create Campaign Codes from their Salesforce Application Portal. Once a campaign code is created, a web link will be generated that can be posted to a website or shared with an applicant through email.

  • Applicants applying using the online Combined Residential Application from an active campaign code generated web link, will see the contractor and/or community organization’s information pre-populated in the Partner Information section of the application.
  • Contractors and community groups can set up multiple campaign codes to track different marketing outreach efforts through Salesforce.
