Notice: Direct Install Program
On March 24, 2016 the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) issued a request for comments on proposed changes to the Direct Install Program. The comment period closed on April 7, 2016 and the responses may be viewed here.
Staff is currently reviewing the comments submitted, and program changes will be considered at a NJBPU Board Agenda meeting (possibly as soon as April 27, 2016). That action will trigger the release of RFPs for the selection of new contractors to deliver the Direct Install Program, as well as to establish equipment pricing. If you are a contractor or vendor interested in being notified once the RFPs are released, please send an email with relevant contact information to DirectInstall@NJCleanEnergy.com.
Once the equipment pricing is secured and the new contractors are engaged and trained on program delivery, the program will begin accepting applications. In the meantime, we encourage customers interested in the Direct Install Program to complete this form in order to be contacted when the program re-opens.
Let us pay up to 70% of your energy efficiency upgrade.
Sometimes, the biggest challenge to improving energy efficiency is knowing where to start and how to get through the process. Created specifically for existing small to medium-sized facilities, Direct Install is a turnkey solution that makes it easy and affordable to upgrade to high efficiency equipment. We will provide you with a FREE energy assessment and a participating contractor will work with you to cut your facility’s energy costs by replacing lighting, HVAC and other outdated operational equipment with energy efficient alternatives. The program pays up to 70% of retrofit costs, dramatically improving your payback on the project.
Measures eligible for Direct Install are limited to specific equipment categories, types and capacities. Boilers may not exceed 1,500,000 Btuh and furnaces may not exceed 140,000 Btuh. Limitations on packaged HVAC, motors and other equipment also apply. Larger capacity equipment may be eligible for financial incentives through NJ SmartStart Buildings.
