New Jersey's Clean Energy Program

Your Power to Save
 
January 2018

 

Join the thousands of New Jersey homeowners, businesses and municipalities that have taken advantage of incentives offered by New Jersey's Clean Energy Program. These programs provide opportunities for you to save energy, money and help protect our climate and shoreline.

BRING IN 2018 THE RIGHT WAY

If you are feeling the cold air inside your home this winter, you are not alone. According to the U.S. Energy Information Agency, 60% of the homes in New Jersey were built using building techniques and materials that do not properly combat the unique climate we experience here in the Northeast.

 

New Jersey's Clean Energy Program's Home Performance with ENERGY STAR certified contractors can conduct critical tests in your home to see how best to eliminate any drafts, address health and safety issues and provide you with rebates up to $4,000 with available financing up to $15,000.

 

Just replacing a single piece of equipment? You can receive money back on your purchase. Energy efficient furnaces can qualify for a $500 rebate as well as a $300 rebate for boilers. Need a new gas water heater? A $300 rebate can help make the choice of the best model available.

ENERGY SAVING TIPS - WINTER

 

When seasons change we also change how we respond to the elements; like wearing layers or staying indoors when it's cold outside. As we protect ourselves from the weather, we can also protect our pocketbooks from colder temperatures.

Before you raise your thermostat here are a few things to consider to keep your utility bill down this winter:

 

1. The Direction of the Ceiling Fan Matters.  Clockwise or counter-clockwise? If you use your ceiling fan to bring down the accumulated heat that has risen, your fan should run in reverse (clockwise) at a low speed. This draws the cool air up towards the ceiling and forces the warm air down and out towards the walls.

 

2. Open your Blinds (or Close Them).  When it's sunny having your blinds open in the southfacing windows allows for the sun to heat the inside space, reducing the need for the heat to be on during the day. At night, the heat that was inside can be "trapped" by closing your blinds or using insulated curtains to minimize the effect of heat being lost through the windows.

 

3. Buy an Insulating "Blanket" for your Water Heater. The U.S. Department of Energy reports that buying a "blanket" for your electric water heater reduces your water heating costs by nine percent. If the water heater temperature is set above 115 degrees, you can save by reducing the temperature setting on the water heater. With the investment of $20 for the blanket, you are sure to make your money back quickly.

NOT A COUPON-ER? NO WORRIES

Everyone likes a good sale but not everyone can be an extreme coupon-er, which can be a full-time job. New Jersey's Clean Energy Program helps its customers by providing rebates on eligible models for heating and cooling equipment and certain appliances (think washers, dryers and refrigerators), we like to stay attuned to when retailers offer discounts on these products.

 

To help you plan your year for major purchases here are some general tips you can follow:

  • January: Stores with older inventory general offer further discounted prices (but there may be a limited selection).
  • May: New refrigerator models are debuted in the summer months. So last year's models will likely be discounted during the spring.
  • September & October: Is the best time to buy most major appliances because the newest models are unveiled and therefore any old models available are discounted to make room for products coming in the winter.
  • Any Holiday Weekend: There's ALWAYS a sale. Especially on Black Friday or President's Weekend! However, do your homework to see if the sale is worth the investment.
  • End of the Month: QUOTA QUOTA QUOTA. If you're great at negotiating, the end of the month is the time to let your skills shine.
  • Weekdays: You'll be able to make an informed decision by getting more face time with a salesperson without the feeling of being rushed by the weekend crowd.

About the New Jersey Clean Energy Program (NJCEP):

Provides financial and other incentives to the State's residential customers, businesses, local governments and schools that install high-efficiency or renewable energy technologies, thereby reducing energy usage, lowering customers' energy bills and reducing environmental impacts. In totality over the last fifteen years, New Jersey has invested more than $3.1 billion in approximately 1.5 million energy saving projects that have reduced electric use by approximately 7% - enough energy savings compounded over 15 years to power about 3.1 million homes. The program is authorized and overseen by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU), and its website is www.NJCleanEnergy.com.
