New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) Economic Development Growth Extension (EDGE) Program offers local, regionally-based access to its energy efficiency and research and development (R&D) programs.
The EDGE Program’s mission includes helping New York’s commercial, industrial, institutional, municipal and residential customers match energy project needs with the available NYSERDA funding opportunities and other economic development resources. Courtney Strong, Inc.’s Regional Outreach Contractors (ROCs) are primary resources on the ground to help in Westchester County and the Mid-Hudson counties of Dutchess, Putnam, Rockland, Orange, Ulster, and Sullivan.
The EDGE Program ROCs support the efforts of the Mid-Hudson Regional Economic Development Council; help organizations and businesses build opportunities and create jobs by providing access to NYSERDA programs that encourage sustainability and resiliency; and provide assistance with the Consolidated Funding Application.
