The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority's (NYSERDA) Wind Incentive Program is designed to encourage the development of a network of eligible installers who will install end-use wind turbines for all sectors. These include, but are not limited to, the residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, institutional, educational, not-for-profit and government sectors. Awards will be paid to eligible installers who meet NYSERDA's requirements for education, training, experience, insurance and other criteria. The installers, in turn, pass through incentives directly to the owners of the wind systems.

Note that incentives are only available for New York electric customers who pay the state's System Benefits Charge and receive electric service from one of the following utilities: Central Hudson Gas and Electric Corporation, Consolidated Edison, New York State Electric and Gas Corporation, Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation, Orange and Rockland Utilities, or Rochester Gas and Electric Corporation.
