NEW YORK — Governor Kathy Hochul on Tuesday announced plans to improve indoor air quality in New York City’s public housing.
“What we are going to do to achieve our goals of moving to fossil-free sources of heating while addressing heating and cooling initiatives in our buildings,” Hochul said.
She said the state will invest $70 million to decarbonize buildings with electric heat pump technology. The devices allow residents to control the temperature in their individual apartments.
The governor said the plan is to equip 30,000 units with the new heating and cooling technology.
