Take a "whole-home" approach to energy efficiency—and reduce your costs by up to 25% a year.


Every home comes with its own quirks—and questions. Do you find it hard to figure out why temperatures are uneven from room to room, your energy bills always seem too high, or you’re not as comfortable as you could be?

Home Performance with ENERGY STAR can help you enjoy every room while lowering your energy costs by up to 25% a year.* Plus, you can get rebates from PSE&G to make energy-saving home improvements.


How You Can Participate

To get started making your home more energy efficient, schedule a home energy assessment with a participating contractor.

Next, depending on the results of your assessment, you could qualify for rebates up to $5,000 and you may be eligible for up to $25,000 in interest-free on-bill repayment to help you pay for your upgrades.
