When you are starting a project from the ground up or performing a gut-rehab, you have unique opportunities to improve your building's energy efficiency with incentives from New Jersey Clean Energy Program™. The following educational resources were created specifically for contractors participating in the SmartStart program.

*Please note that energy-efficient equipment purchased and installed for Existing Building Upgrades will only be eligible for SmartStart incentives if purchased before July 1st, 2021. Please refer to the new existing building energy efficiency programs now offered by your local utility company. Please find additional information on the transition of energy efficiency programs here.
