New Jersey's Clean Energy Program (NJCEP): Home Performance with Energy Star (Residential)

Home Performance with ENERGY STAR

Save money and energy in your home with Home Performance!

Home Performance with ENERGY STAR offers "whole house” solutions to reduce both your energy costs and carbon footprint. Installing energy efficient upgrades in your home can save you up to 30% on energy costs and increase the comfort, safety, and durability of your home. 

Home Performance will help resolve indoor air quality problems in your home. Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later. Learn how detrimental poor indoor air quality can be to your family's health.

New Jersey homeowners now have until June 30, 2018 to receive up to $4,000 in financial incentives. You may also qualify for 0% interest financing (up to $10,000 with a 7-year maximum term) or 4.99% financing (up to $15,000 with a 10-year maximum term) to help pay for the energy-efficient upgrades!

How do I get started?

The first step is to schedule an assessment (home energy audit) by contacting one of our participating accredited and certified contractors. The technician will take inventory and report on the current conditions of your home from top to bottom. The contractor will assess your heating and cooling equipment, conduct a combustion safety test on appliances and check insulation levels and look for air sealing opportunities. This video can show you what to expect during your home energy audit.  After the assessment, you will receive a report listing recommended measures, along with financial incentives available to pay for the work.

It is generally accepted practice to contact several contractors before selecting one. Please call 866-NJSMART should you have any questions. Opt-in to sign up for the New Jersey Clean Energy Program newsletter.

Act now so you can lower your energy bills. Imagine what you'll be able to do with the money you save!
