Energy Savings for Income Eligible Customers in New Jersey

If you’re a Rockland Electric customer receiving public assistance, you may qualify for the installation of energy-efficient measures at no cost to you.

Rockland Electric’s Residential Direct Install program can help you save money on your utility bills, while increasing the comfort and safety of your home or apartment.

If you meet certain eligibility requirements, you can get energy efficiency measures installed at no cost to you, and also receive valuable information about conserving energy.

How it Works

A Building Performance Institute (BPI) certified technician from our contractor, Honeywell Utility Solutions, will come to your home to perform an energy assessment and health and safety testing. The technician will review with you the many factors that affect your energy use, and will also make energy-saving installation recommendations valued up to $2,500. These measures would be installed at no cost to you.
