Borek said Zerodraft, along with trying to share the concept of the “whole house approach” with Upstate New York through its Syracuse, Buffalo and Albany locations, is also trying to make it easier for the customer to afford needed improvements.
“We are educating people about the programs that are out there to help them do these projects in the most economical way,” he said. “There is the Home Performance with Energy Star program that includes rebates and grants depending upon income to help people finance the improvements. We customize comfort and energy solutions and properly align them with the most cost effective financing programs.”
Borek said Zerodraft was one of the first companies in New York to get projects set up through NYSERDA’s On Utility Bill Financing Plan.
“We determine what the savings per month the customer will realize on their utility bill based upon a prioritized list of energy improvements – a $100 per month reduction or $1,200 a year over five years equals a total savings of $6,000,” Borek said. “The customer can then get financed for a $6,000 energy reduction project with the idea that the loan payment for the project will be offset by the savings from their utility bill.”
