On July 1st, Direct Install from New Jersey's Clean Energy Program™ officially transitioned to utilities and will 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.
Direct Install programs offered through New Jersey's public utilities will be beginning to roll out this summer. Join our mailing list to get up-to-date program news and offerings here.
