PSE&G Direct Install Program for Government, Non-Profit and Small Business Facilities

Affordable, energy efficiency solutions to help you save energy and lower your costs!

PSE&G’s Direct Install Program has already helped hundreds of city halls, firehouses, community service organizations and non-profits save energy and money by becoming more energy efficient.  And now, for the first time in several years, we are offering the Direct Install Program to PSE&G small business customers located in Urban Enterprise Zones.

 

The PSE&G Direct Install Program could help you cut your energy costs by up to 30 percent by offering a FREE on-site energy audit of your facility’s gas- and electric-consuming equipment and helping to pay for a large portion of the installation of recommended energy conservation measures.

 

How The Program Works

PSE&G makes the investment in energy efficiency upgrades easy for government, non-profit and small business facilities by:

  1. Performing a FREE on-site energy audit.
  2. Providing a detailed report explaining the audit results and recommended energy efficient equipment upgrades.
  3. Creating a proposal, based on the audit, with costs to install the new energy efficient equipment.
  4. Hiring a PSE&G authorized contractor to perform the work once the cost proposal is approved.
  5. Covering 100 percent of the upfront costs for the energy efficiency work and participating customers repay only 30 percent of the total, interest free, over 36 months on their PSE&G bill, or in one lump sum payment if they prefer.

Eligible Energy Efficient Equipment upgrades can include:

  • Lighting retrofits including sensors and controls
  • Refrigeration, motors and HVAC
  • Site-specific custom projects
