grey_scale.jpgPathfinder has been selected for a new NYSERDA program that focuses on commercial tenant office spaces. It cost cost-shares the development of energy efficiency packages through building modeling. Pathfinder is also an Energy Modeling Partner with NYSERDA's New Construction Program and a FlexTech provider.

Commercial Tenant Program: A custom energy package tailored to the unique needs and requirements of a tenant.

  • NYSERDA will provide 50% of the cost of developing this package from the onset.
  • Tenants moving into a new construction building who are not eligible to participate in the New Construction Progran can be considered for the Commercial Tenant Program.

Building Package for Standard Tenant Space: Owners and managers who wish to engage more with current and prospective tenants, may develop an energy package for a ‘typical’ tenant space in their building. The results can be shared as part of a tenant welcome package.

  • NYSERDA will provide 50% of the cost of developing these designs from the onset.
  • For existing models developed cost-share is 100% up to $10,000. These models may have been previously developed as part of LEED certification, AHSRAE Level 3, or Flextech program

Combined Package: A modeler that has already worked with one of their tenants through this program can also work with the building owner to modify the custom package into a standard package. These designs can be used to inform lease negotiations and fit-outs. NYSERDA will provide 100% of the cost of modifying these designs which will eliminate the need for additional tenant-specific energy modeling in the building.
