PSE&G New Jersey has officially launched their Direct Install Program for non-profits, local governments, and small businesses in Urban Enterprise Zone cities. This energy efficiency program works to provide comprehensive solutions and incentives for commercial building upgrades to help reduce energy usage and lower carbon emissions. By upgrading through the Direct Install program, you can help cut your facility’s energy use by 30% or more!
To be eligible for the Direct Install Program you must be a current PSE&G customer and in good payment standing.
Eligible energy-efficient equipment upgrades can include:
If qualified, PSE&G pays for 100% of the up-front costs, and the work is done by Donnelly Energy. When the work is complete, PSE&G offers interest-free, on-bill repayment plans, so you can enjoy the benefits of an efficient facility today and pay for your project over five years.
Donnelly Energy is the PSE&G authorized contractor for Burlington, Glouchester, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, and Passaic counties.
In July 2021, Direct Install from New Jersey's Clean Energy Program™ officially transitioned to utilities and is no longer be offered by the state/New Jersey's Board of Public Utilities. For more information, visit https://www.njcleanenergy.com/.
Direct Install is a utility incentive program that offers easy and affordable lighting and HVACR (heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration) services for small-to-medium-sized businesses and commercial facilities that typically don't have the time, money, or resources to upgrade on their own.
With highly-vetted experts and trade allies (like Donnelly), Direct Install overs full turnkey services at up to 70% off the total project cost upfront. Think of it as having your own "green team" who will work with you on achieving the best and most cost-efficient upgrades to reduce your facility's carbon footprint and overall energy costs.
