Commercial & Industrial Carbon Challenge

New York State Energy Research and Development Authority

If you are a large energy consumer in New York State and have not entered NYSERDA’s C&I Carbon Challenge, don’t worry, you still have time and Cascade is here to help! 

The C&I Carbon Challenge was designed to help companies and organizations implement their best energy-saving, carbon-reduction projects through a competitive proposal process.  

NYSERDA is awarding up to $15 million, ranging from $500,000 to $5 million per successful proposal. Funds can be used for a single large project or a portfolio of projects. All proposals must include beneficial electrification, carbon capture, manufacturing process emission reductions or low-carbon fuel projects. Dispersed over three years, large energy consumers will use these funds to execute energy-saving/carbon-reduction projects. Awardees will continue to work closely with NYSERDA to update, refine, and implement their carbon reduction strategies over three years. Each awardee will also receive the benefit of a dedicated NYSERDA project manager and technical specialist to track progress, provide feedback and guidance on measures to be implemented, and collaborate with other NYSERDA partners. 

With this funding, large energy consumers like you can prioritize energy efficiency projects and Cascade can help you tackle them! 

Our experts are prepared to guide you every step of the way, from proposal submission to project completion.  

Call Cascade today for help developing a winning project! 

Don’t forget, the deadline to submit is July 28th, 2023.
