HOME PERFORMANCE WITH ENERGY STAR
WHAT: Complete an energy audit of your home to find out how to make your home more energy efficient (e.g. insulating the attic, HVAC system upgrades)
COSTS: Rebates up to $4,000 and 0% interest financing are available ($10,000/7 year and $15,000/9 year max loan terms available).
WHO: The State of New Jersey has developed a database of accredited contractors to choose from, and you can search by distance from zip code, number of projects completed, etc. For ease of use, the Township has narrowed down the database to a list of contractors within 25 miles. This listing is for informational use only, and does not represent a specific Township endorsement. The contractors are listed in alphabetical order, there should not be any implications derived from their sequence.
