There are three great programs available to residents that make it possible for EVERY resident to reduce their use of fossil fuels.
The NJ Home Performance with ENERGYSTAR Program: This program offers rebates and financing for energy upgrades, including insulation. NEW, second estimate program! If you already have an HPwES energy assessment, we now have a way to get a second price estimate without paying for a second assessment!
Comfort Partners Program: Are energy bills putting a strain on your finances? This program provides income-qualified residents with free energy efficiency upgrades to reduce their monthly bills.
Maplewood Solar Challenge: The Maplewood Solar Challenge was developed to help answer these questions and to make it simple and easy to get a solar energy system of your own. The Maplewood Solar Challenge is a township-sponsored program; we have partnered with Sustainable Jersey and EnergySage, an online solar marketplace that was developed with funding and support from the U.S. Department of Energy. Residents in other townships have been invited to also use the estimator tool; these participants just won’t count toward Maplewood winning the statewide challenge.
Are you a DIY kind of person? the Department of Energy has a great How-to page for some basic efficiency measures that add up to big savings and reduced fossil fuel usage!
