A home energy audit is often the first step in making your home more efficient. An audit can help you assess how much energy your home uses and evaluate what measures you can take to improve efficiency, comfort and safety.  An energy audit is necessary to gain access to incentives and rebates from the NJ Clean Energy program.  These rebates can be from $2,000 up to $4,000.  Loans are also available for $5,000 - $15,000.
