Bayonne Residents: Hurricane Recovery Assistance Available From Clean Energy Program

         Bayonne’s  Mayor Mark A. Smith announced that Hurricane Sandy recovery assistance is available from New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program.  Mayor Smith said, “I urge both residents and business owners to apply for the financial assistance and environmental savings available from the New Jersey Clean Energy Program.  The program offers rebates and equipment incentives that could help homes and businesses get back up and running.”

            If you install new appliances, the Clean Energy Program can offer rebates when you purchase high-efficiency equipment.  Businesses can benefit, too.  Rebates to businesses are available through the New Jersey SmartStart Buildings Program.  Businesses can receive rebates if they need to replace equipment damaged by the storm.  Eligible equipment includes HVAC; motors and drives; lighting and lighting controls; water heating; and refrigeration.

            The Clean Energy Program can offer a variety of rebates for qualified purchases.  Here are some examples: furnace or boiler, up to $400; heat pump, $500; central air conditioner, $500; water heater, $300; and clothes washer, $50.   

Visit the New Jersey Clean Energy website,  Call 1-866-NJSMART (657-6278) for more information on these and other energy-saving programs for your home or business.

Mayor Smith concluded, “The Clean Energy Program should be part of the checklist for any Bayonne property owner who is recovering from Hurricane Sandy.  Be sure to see whether you might be eligible for this program’s incentives and benefits.”
