The New Jersey Comfort Partners Program is a free energy saving and energy education program for qualified low-income customers.
We partner with you to help you save energy and money and make your home more energy efficient. Certified Building Performance Institute contractors will install energy saving measures in your home to help lower your energy bills. You will also be taught new ways to conserve energy and how to create an Action Plan to support your efforts.
If eligible, participants receive:
- Installation of cost-effective energy efficiency measures in the home (determined on a home-specific basis) which can include: efficient lighting products; hot water conservation measures (water heater insulation, water heater pipe insulation and energy-saving showerheads and aerators); replacement of inefficient refrigerators; thermostats; insulation upgrades (attic, wall, etc.); blower-door guided air sealing; duct sealing and repair; heating/cooling equipment maintenance and other measures.
- Comprehensive, personalized energy education and counseling.
- All efficiency measures and energy education services are provided free of charge.
