Summary 
NOTE: The program is available through June 30, 2015 or until the funds are exhausted.

The New Jersey Comfort Partners program is a free of charge, direct installation energy efficiency assistance program available to most New Jersey households with significant energy usage and an income at or below 225% of the federal poverty guidelines. The measures offered are case-specific and will depend on the outcome of a comprehensive energy analysis of the household, but may include lighting upgrades, home and equipment insulation, HVAC system repairs, replacement of inefficient appliances (e.g., refrigerators), air and duct sealing, or custom measures. It is important to note that these (and the eligible technologies listed at the top of this page) are only examples of possible improvements which may take place pending the results of the home energy analysis. The program will also provide comprehensive, personalized energy education and counseling for participants, who are asked to partner with the program to carry out an energy savings action plan.

The customer must use the home as a primary residence; be the ratepayer of record with the electric or gas utility; and live in a building with 1-14 units. Ineligible customers will be referred to other assistance program for which they may qualify. For further details, including information about program enrollment and income guidelines for the current year, interested parties should visit the program website listed at the top of this page or contact their utility using one of the toll-free numbers below.
