Direct Install

Direct Install from New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program™

Direct Install is a turnkey solution that makes it easy and affordable for commercial facilities and small businesses to upgrade to high efficiency LED lighting and HVACR equipment.

New Jersey uses a lot of energy – up to the point where the state’s power grids are running at capacity. Hurricane Sandy knocked out power to over 2 million customers—some for up to two weeks—due to grid failures. While state utilities have been upgrading infrastructure and creating Microgrids since 2012, we can do our part in helping to lessen the strain on our grids by going Green.

Direct Install is an incentive program created to help the state’s energy usage problem by upgrading commercial facilities to LED lighting and updating their HVACR (heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration). New Jersey has A LOT of industry and opportunities to help lower its energy usage; so much so, that Direct Install will pay up to 70% off for eligible businesses to upgrade.
