REPLACING LOST OR DAMAGED ITEMS
Financial Incentives through NJ's Clean Energy Program
Temporary financial incentives are being offered through the New Jersey' Clean Energy Program to New Jersey residents, business owners and local government officials recovering from the damage of Hurricane Sandy.
If your home is located in a zip code designated as a "major" or "minor" damaged area impacted by Hurricane Sandy, you may be eligible for these enhanced incentives on high efficiency equipment including furnaces, boilers, heat pumps, gas water heaters and mini-split units.
If you are located outside the eligible zip code list, you may also qualify for increased incentives by demonstrating that you have experienced damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. Applications for Hurricane Sandy relief incentives outside the eligible zip code list will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Qualifying equipment purchased on or after October 29, 2012 through June 30, 2013 is eligible.
Find application procedures, a list of qualifying locations, answers to frequently asked questions and more by going to NJ Clean Energy. Call 866-NJSMART, extension 4, to speak with someone about this incentive program.
