On-the-Job Training for Energy Efficiency and Clean Technology (PON 3982)

Due Date:  Continuous


NYSERDA’s On-The-Job Training for Energy Efficiency and Clean Technology program will provide wage subsidies to eligible businesses to help reduce the financial risk of hiring and training new workers. This program enables New York State to meet the objectives of the Clean Energy Fund and advance the climate equity and just transition goals of New York’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) by developing a workforce equipped to perform jobs in energy efficiency and clean technology, and supporting disadvantaged communities and priority populations.

NYSERDA is working closely with the New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL) to deliver the OJT program and help develop job skills for new workers in energy efficiency and clean technology businesses. The NYSDOL assists participating businesses with developing OJT training plans as well as assessing necessary skills and identifying available workers that match those skills. The primary purpose of OJT funding is to train new hires for clean energy work. The program cannot support workers hired by businesses prior to approval of an application to participate in the program and hire a new worker.
