What is NYC Accelerator? 

NYC Accelerator is a program sponsored by the Mayor’s Office of Climate and Environmental Justice to decarbonize NYC’s building stock and help the city achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

  • This unfunded mandate and costly fine program needs tweaking. The City should make consulting engineers available to multifamily buildings who will evaluate the state of your building and tell you what you need to meet each carbon reduction compliance deadlines. NYC Accelerator is a good start, but since the buildings have the burdens, the City should also provide solutions to financing the implementation of what their consultants say is required. I also think there should be no exceptions for NYC owned properties. Let the legislators then explain to their constituents the increases in taxes needed to fund the carbon reductions to taxpayer owned properties.
