NYC Clean Heat works to improve air quality and save lives by eliminating the use of heavy heating oils and accelerating the conversion to cleaner fuels. Through the Clean Heat program more than 1,400 buildings have already converted to one of the cleanest heating fuels and are halfway to achieving the goal of reducing emissions by 50% by the end of the year.

NYCEEC is a city-affiliated non-profit that provides financing for building owners seeking to implement energy-efficiency measures and clean heat conversions to NYC buildings.

NYC GOV: Temporary Guidelines for Heating Oil and Boiler Repairs

nyc.gov:

Today, November 8th, Mayor Bloomberg announced temporary guidelines to speed heating oil deliveries and boiler repairs to ensure New Yorkers can heat their homes and businesses as the weather becomes colder and as the City recovers from Hurricane Sandy.  To ensure that New Yorkers have access to heating fuel, the City has temporarily suspended sulfur limits, allowing use of oils with higher sulfur content through December 7th. The City also has streamlined emergency work permits for boiler repairs and replacements to reduce the application timeline by as much as two weeks. 

For more information on work permit applications, visit nyc.gov/dep.
