It is one of several programs PSE&G offers to help customers save money and reduce energy usage. The program removes older, energy-wasting refrigerators and freezers as well as room air conditioners and dehumidifiers—and recycles the units in an environmentally responsible way.
PSE&G created the Appliance Recycling Program as part of state-mandated efforts to increase energy efficiency. It is one of many programs that will be offered as part of PSE&G's plan to help customers reduce energy usage.
It will save you money and is good for the environment. Older refrigerators and freezers typically use four times more electricity than newer models that are being produced today.
Yes. Customers who recycle their old, working refrigerators and/or freezers will receive a $50 rebate from PSE&G. An additional rebate of $25 also is available for old, working room air conditioners and dehumidifiers when they are picked up with a refrigerator or freezer. Visit our Appliance Recycling page to learn more.
For a limited time (September 1 – November 30, 2022), PSE&G offered increased rebate amounts of $100 for each working refrigerator or freezer, plus an additional $35 for each working room air conditioner or dehumidifier recycled at the same time. To qualify, customers must have scheduled their pickup between September 1 and November 30, 2022, and had their pickup occur on or before December 30, 2022. Participants will receive their rebate check in the mail 4-6 weeks after their pickup.
If a secondary refrigerator, usually located in the basement or garage, is removed and not replaced, households can save about $150 per year, depending on the size of the unit.
At PSE&G, safety is our top priority. As part of our commitment to safety, we are closely monitoring developments related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic—and taking appropriate precautions to protect the health and safety of our customers, contractors, and employees. To this end, we now offer no-contact pickup (see next question). During your no-contact appliance pickup, our team will be wearing personal protective equipment, including masks. Team members will not initiate contact with you and will maintain a physical distance of at least six (6) feet. Before and after each pickup, the team will properly sanitize their hands, the appliance units, and their trucks.
In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, we are taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of our customers and contractors. No-contact pickups enable our staff to safely collect and recycle your old appliances without physical contact with you.
Yes, we offer indoor and outdoor pickups that comply with COVID-19 safety protocols.
Our no-contact pickup will allow you to maintain social distance from our collection team during your scheduled pickup. You will be able to stay six feet away while our team removes your appliances.
Designated outside locations include garages, porches, and outbuildings.
If you are unable to print the required authorization form, please contact us at 1-888-484-8313 to have the form mailed to you.
PSE&G is partnering with Appliance Recycling Centers of America (ARCA) on the program. All ARCA employees will wear uniforms and display an identification badge with their photograph.
To schedule a pickup of an older refrigerator or freezer (and room air conditioner and/or dehumidifier if applicable), customers may call ARCA toll-free at 1-888-484-8313 or schedule an appointment online.
There is a pickup limit of two refrigerators and/or freezers per PSE&G residential household per year. A room air conditioner or dehumidifier must be picked up in conjunction with a refrigerator and/or freezer pickup and cannot be picked up by itself; these smaller appliances also have a limit of two per PSE&G residential household per year.
The program will be available through September 30, 2023. Depending on available funds, the program may be extended beyond that date.
Once your unit is confirmed to be in working condition following pickup, we will mail a check to your address within four to six (4–6) weeks.
No. Rebates can only be issued in the form of a check.
More than 95% of each unit is recycled by ARCA at a recycling facility located in Philadelphia following guidelines from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) program.
In order to receive a rebate, the appliance must be in working condition. To verify your appliance is in working condition, please have the unit plugged in outside in your garage, porch, or outbuilding. If the unit is not plugged in, the team will test the unit back at the recycling facility to ensure that it is in working condition. If the unit is determined to not be in working condition at that time, you will not be eligible to receive a rebate.
The Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program (HPwES) uses a whole-house approach to make an existing 1-4 family home or low-rise multifamily building more energy efficient and to lower energy consumption. Each participating contractor has been staff certified by the Building Performance Institute (BPI). Only contractors with BPI certified staff can participate in the Program. These specially trained professionals use advanced diagnostic equipment to test the home and identify optimal energy efficiency improvements.
The Home Performance with ENERGY STAR assessment is the first step toward making your home more energy efficient and reducing energy bills. During this comprehensive energy assessment, the BPI certified contractor tests and evaluates the home using advanced diagnostic equipment and building science principles to determine which areas would benefit from energy efficiency and health and safety-related improvements. Features to be tested include but are not limited to heating and cooling equipment, insulation levels, air infiltration, appliances and lighting. During the assessment, the contractor will install a number of energy saving features, such as LED bulbs, faucet aerators, advanced power strips, and efficient-flow showerheads. If the home is more than 3,000 square feet or has more than one combustion appliance zone, additional fees may apply at the discretion of your contractor.
During the assessment, the contractor may use a blower door and infrared scan to test for air-leakage; conduct a series of combustion-related tests; and explore opportunities to improve the home’s insulation, heating and cooling system, appliances, and lighting. The contractor will then explain to you what improvements can be made, and what they will cost.
Improvements may include sealing gaps, cracks, and other leaks to prevent outside air from entering your home, adding insulation and sealing and insulating or replacing air ducts that run through attics or crawlspaces. Improvements may also include repairing or replacing old or poorly functioning heating and cooling systems and appliances. Installing ENERGY STAR® certified lighting is another commonly performed, cost-effective improvement.
Energy efficiency upgrades can improve the comfort of your home, enhance its value and ensure that occupants are living in a safe environment. In addition, as a result of the improvements, you will reduce your energy usage every month.
To be eligible for the program, you must be a residential PSE&G customer with a PSE&G account number and the owner of the house where the assessment will be performed. Before July 1, 2021, participation is limited to PSE&G electric and gas customers. Beginning July 1, 2021 all PSE&G residential customers are eligible. This offer is not valid for new construction or commercial properties. Customers that receive ONLY PSE&G gas or electric service can visit njcleanenergy.com for more details.
The program strongly encourages you to accompany your contractor during the Home Performance Energy assessment and to ask questions and learn about other energy savings opportunities. Your participation will help when discussing the assessment findings, your contractor’s recommendations and how you can reduce energy use.
To better serve you, all PSE&G Participating Contractors have put health and safety measures in place that meet or exceed public health guidelines. In addition to keeping technicians safe, these measures help protect you and your family. They include (but are not limited to) strict physical distancing, technician wellness screenings, proper hygiene, and the use of face masks and other protective equipment. As a further precaution, your contractor may ask screening questions when scheduling your energy assessment or home improvement project. When scheduling your assessment, ask your contractor about other specific health and safety questions or concerns you may have.
Once your energy assessment is complete and you receive the contractor’s recommendations, it is your decision whether to sign a contract and move forward with the improvements. You are under no obligation to have the work performed, but remember, the recommended energy efficiency improvements can upgrade your home, lower energy bills and improve indoor air quality, and comfort of your home. You and your family can realize significant benefits by moving forward with the recommended improvements as soon as possible following your Home Performance Energy Assessment.
The scope of upgrades and the time needed to complete them will vary by participant and the type of energy efficiency improvement(s) you select. To complete the contracted improvements to your home, your contractor may have to visit your home on multiple days. At a minimum, PSE&G strongly recommends that you meet with the contractor at the beginning of each day before work begins and at the end of the day to review progress and to help you better understand the impact the work will have on your home. Be aware that the normal routine of your household may be disrupted while the contractor performs the improvements.
Costs depend on factors including the size and age of your home, the recommended improvements, and which upgrades you choose to install. Homeowners can receive cash incentives to help offset some of the costs of improvements.
BPI-certified contractors perform critical combustion safety-related tests before and after performing energy improvements to the home. Assessing and testing combustion appliances—such as heating equipment, ovens, and water heaters for proper performance and carbon monoxide emissions—helps ensure safe, efficient operation and prevent dangerous gases from being introduced into the home. Such tests are critical when tightening up a home to make it more energy-efficient and comfortable.
Yes, Building Performance Institute (BPI) multifamily certification is required and the BPI multifamily standards must be followed.
Participating contractors must employ properly trained staff and must allow assessment of work performed by the program to ensure that all measures are properly installed and safety precautions are observed. To participate in the HPwES program, a contracting company must be Building Performance Institute (BPI) certified. In addition, the HPwES program requires that, company-wide, an employee(s) hold a BPI Building Analyst Professional certification. The employee certification requirements provide assurance to both customers and the program that all cost-effective savings opportunities have been identified, any health and safety considerations are also included in the report of recommended actions, and workers are competent. Participating contractors must guarantee all work, and agree to abide by BPI standards governing health and safety, work quality, insurance coverage, customer service, and complaint resolution, and follow all requirements as described in the HPwES participating contractor agreement.
Begin your application using our online contractor registration portal. To begin, all contractors will need to register, complete the contractor application and submit a new participation agreement through the online Contractor registration portal. The HPwES participation agreement will be valid with all 7 New Jersey utilities. Once a participation agreement is signed, the contractor will indicate the counties in which they operate in the application and the application will transfer to all other utilities servicing those counties. Please contact us at 1-855-846-2895 if you have questions.

Yes. Our participating contractors will provide you with an instant discount at the time of installation. Find a participating contractor.
PSE&G does not assess installations to verify quality or safety. However, PSE&G will randomly conduct assessments to confirm that qualifying equipment was installed. If you are selected for an assessment, PSE&G will call you to schedule an appointment.
To better serve you, all PSE&G participating contractors have put health and safety measures in place that meet or exceed public health guidelines. In addition to keeping technicians safe, these measures help protect you and your family. They include (but are not limited to) strict physical distancing, technician wellness screenings, proper hygiene, and the use of face masks and other protective equipment.
Contact the contractor who performed the work, the Better Business Bureau, or the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs.
Start by calling PSE&G at 1-855-846-2895 between 8 a.m.-8 p.m., Monday-Friday. A member of PSE&G’s HVAC Account Management team will work with you to begin the process of getting your chosen contractor registered as a PSE&G participating contractor.
If you have installed qualifying energy efficient products or started an energy efficiency project at your home, you may be eligible to participate in an on-bill repayment plan through PSE&G. PSE&G may qualify customers using payment history, third-party credit reporting, and/or financial statement review as part of the application process. More information will be provided soon.
No. If you have already applied for a rebate on a heat pump, you are not eligible to apply for a rebate on a furnace or air conditioner. These rebates cannot be combined because PSE&G only provides a rebate for the primary heating source.
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, EER stands for Energy Efficiency Ratio, and HSPF stands for Heating Season Performance Factor.
SEER, EER, and HSPF ratings are determined by entering the model number of the indoor coil, the outdoor unit, and in many cases the air handler or furnace into the AHRI directory. If the complete system does not meet the program requirements, you will not be eligible for a rebate.
When furnaces produce heat, they need a motorized fan to circulate the air. An electronically commutated motor (ECM) furnace circulates hot air into the ducts that run through the walls of the building. ECM furnace motors typically use significantly less electricity than traditional furnace fans.
In most cases, yes, your furnace or air handler must be high efficiency. The PSE&G HVAC Instant Rebate Program requires SEER and EER ratings for a complete system as rated by AHRI—so you should check with your contractor to determine if your complete system qualifies for the PSE&G rebate. Your contractor should be able to confirm the system rating in the AHRI database and verify your eligibility.

LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, are semiconductor devices that produce visible light when an electrical current is passed through them.
LED lighting differs from incandescent and compact fluorescent lighting in several ways. When designed well, LED lighting can be more efficient, durable, versatile, and longer lasting. LEDs are ideal for recessed can and track lighting. They last at least 15 times longer and use up to 90 % less energy than standard incandescent bulbs. In addition, LEDs turn on instantly with no flickering, produce less heat, and allow for precise placement of light due to their directional nature. Finally, LEDs are available in a variety of color hues and temperatures, and most LED bulbs are dimmable.
Instant lighting discounts of up to $7 per bulb on ENERGY STAR certified LEDs will be available at participating retailer locations throughout PSE&G’s electric service area.
Instant lighting discounts will be available from the retailers listed below, with additional retailers to be added throughout the program year:
For more information, customers can call 1-855-846-2895. Beginning on July 1, 2021, additional information will be available at Homeenergy.pseg.com and homeenergy.pseg.com/lightingdiscounts
ENERGY STAR certified products have been tested to meet stringent performance criteria established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. These criteria ensure that all bulbs earning the ENERGY STAR label meet minimum lifetime and efficacy requirements, and are within maximum allowed product start and warm-up times. If you choose a bulb that is not ENERGY STAR certified, you may be sacrificing performance.
PSE&G is partnering with retailers throughout New Jersey to provide incentives to customers who purchase energy-efficient products. Look for ENERGY STAR rated bulbs with the instant discount sticker when you shop at the retailers found on this page.
A lumen is a measure of light output, while a watt is a measure of power consumption or how much electricity is needed to power the bulb. For example, a common 60W incandescent bulb produces about 800 lumens. When purchasing a light bulb, your primary concern is light output, which is measured in lumens. By selecting a 13-watt ENERGY STAR certified LED instead of the 60W incandescent bulb, you can still get 800 lumens, but the LED requires much less power and helps you save on energy costs.
It’s simple to find an ENERGY STAR certified LED bulb that will produce the same amount of light as your current incandescent bulb. Manufacturers include product equivalency information on the packaging to help consumers choose a bulb that produces enough light. For example, if you want an ENERGY STAR certified LED light bulb to replace your 60-watt incandescent, just look for words like “Soft White 60” or “60-Watt Replacement” on the packaging.
Yes. However, you should look for products that have the word "Dimmable" on the packaging. Almost all LEDs are dimmable—meaning they will not flicker, hum, or have huge color shifts. Note that using a regular CFL on a dimming switch or circuit will cause performance issues and shorten its rated life.
Because CFLs contain a small amount of mercury, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends that you take your CFLs to a recycling location. You also can take CFL bulbs to your local municipal recycling center. If there are no recycling options near you and you must put CFLs in the trash, put the CFL in two sealed plastic bags. CFLs should not be disposed of in an incinerator.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), CFLs contain a small amount of mercury sealed within their glass tubing. When a CFL breaks, some of the mercury can be released as vapor.
The EPA has updated its recommendations on how to properly clean up a broken CFL. First, people and pets should leave the room, and windows or doors should be open. If any central heating or air conditioning is running, shut it off. Gather materials (sealable plastic bag, broom, wet paper towels, stiff cardboard, tape) to clean up the broken bulb. Do not use a vacuum cleaner.
PSE&G's Energy Check for Multi-family program offers a no cost on-site energy efficiency assessment and installation of energy-saving products at no cost in units and common areas to help you and your tenants reduce energy use. Energy-saving measures may include the following items:
Market rate properties with three or more units and a shared common area—such as apartments, condominiums, student apartments, and assisted living facilities—all can be considered multi-family properties. To learn more about eligibility requirements, please call 1-855-846-2895 or email PSEGHomeEnergy@icf.com.
Yes, there are several solutions available for properties below market rate. For more information about solutions for which your property will qualify, call 1-855-846-2895 or email PSEGHomeEnergy@icf.com.
Taking advantage of PSE&G's Energy Check for Multi-family program is a great way to start lowering operating costs and increasing your property's value. You and your tenants can start saving energy from the moment the products are installed. You will get tips from our professional advisers on energy-efficient products.
There is no cost to the property manager or tenants for participating in Energy Check for Multi-family.
This depends on the size of the opportunity in each residential unit. Typically, our teams are in units for less than five minutes, and the team can complete approximately 50 units in a day.
The water temperature will not be affected by the energy-efficient fixtures.
Energy Check for Multi-family only installs aerators designed to perform the same task using less water, more efficiently. Energy-saving aerators mix air and water to provide the correct surface area coverage for completing tasks.
Energy Check for Multi-family teams can replace all screw-in bulbs in permanent fixtures within your tenants' units.
Currently PSE&G has LED replacements for a-type, candelabra, globe, and flood bulbs. These bulbs will replace incandescent, halogen, and compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs.
If a CFL is broken, all people and pets should vacate the room for five to 10 minutes, and a window or door should be opened to air out the space during that time. Central forced air heating/air conditioning systems should be turned off, as well. Thoroughly sweep up the broken glass and place bulb debris and cleaning materials outdoors in a sealed trash container. For disposal of an intact CFL bulb, visit epa.gov.
PSE&G’s on-bill repayment option provides you with the flexibility and convenience of being able to pay for higher-priced home energy efficiency upgrades over a period of time. With this option, you will see repayment installments of equal amounts on your monthly bill.
We offer on-bill repayment as an option for our HVAC Instant Rebate Program and our Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Program customers. For each of these programs, the participating contractor you select can help you determine what specific equipment and installation costs are eligible for on-bill repayment.
Additionally, if you participate in a Quick Home Energy Check-up, you may choose to have a smart thermostat professionally installed for a discounted price, and the cost will be added to your monthly PSE&G bill as part of our interest-free on-bill repayment option.
First, discuss on-bill repayment with your participating contractor. If you are eligible, your contractor will then apply for on-bill repayment approval on your behalf prior to starting your project. To qualify for on-bill repayment, you must have 12 months of continuous, on-time payment history with PSE&G.
If you have not yet been a PSE&G customer for 12 months, you still may be eligible for on-bill repayment. Ask your previous gas or electric utility to provide you with a letter of credit for service within the past 24 months, confirming that your account had 12 months of continuous, on-time payment.
PSE&G will notify your contractor of either an approval or a denial. If you are denied for on-bill repayment, PSE&G will send you an email notifying you of the reason(s) why. We will not communicate the reasons for denial to your contractor.
Yes. If we initially deny you for on-bill repayment, you may reapply after 60 days.
Yes. We do have an appeal process and will review the account if there is additional information to be considered.
Once we approve you for on-bill repayment, we will notify your participating contractor, and they will enroll you. All payment agreements are between PSE&G and the eligible customer. Please note that the PSE&G account holder at the property where the work is performed must be the customer who signs the agreement.
All on-bill repayment options are interest-free (0%).
For our HVAC Instant Rebate Program, customers may select an on-bill repayment term of 84 months (7 years) for project costs less than or equal to $15,000, or a term of 120 months (10 years) if you meet the low or moderate household income requirements.
The Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program offers an on-bill repayment term of 84 months (7 years) for project costs less than or equal to $10,000, or a term of 120 months (10 years) for project costs between $10,001 and $15,000.
Yes, you may enroll in on-bill repayment multiple times across different projects and/or programs. However, the maximum amount of credit per account is $15,000.
Yes, you may enroll in on-bill repayment with each of your PSE&G accounts. Please note that you will be subject to a maximum outstanding balance of $15,000 per account.
No, PSE&G does not perform a credit check or contact any credit bureau for additional information in order to gauge a customer’s eligibility for on-bill repayment.
If your account is closed for any reason, the unpaid balance is due and payable to PSE&G immediately.
A Quick Home Energy Check-up is designed to help you better understand your energy usage so you can take steps to make your home more comfortable and energy efficient.
The assessment is fast and easy. An energy adviser, certified by the Building Performance Institute (BPI), will perform a visual evaluation of your home's insulation levels (including the windows and doors), heating and cooling systems, lighting, and appliances.
