The new version of DSIRE will offer significant improvements over the current version, including expanded data accessibility and an array of new tools for site users. The new DSIRE site will be available in December 2014. Staff are currently working hard on the new version of DSIRE but are also maintaining the content of the current version of DSIRE.

Summary:

The New Jersey Office of Clean Energy (OCE) offers rebates to state residents who purchase certain energy efficient home appliances. As of April 2, 2013, active rebates exist for energy efficient clothes washers and refrigerators. The program website has a search engine where consumers can look up local retailers offering discounts on compact fluorescent lighting products. The OCE also offers a $50 rebate for refrigerator/freezer recycling. This recycling offer is only valid till June 30, 2015.

When mail-in rebates are active, as a general rule, all appliances must be ENERGY STAR rated; however, additional requirements may apply to different types of appliances. Rebate requests must generally be made no later than one month after the purchase of a qualifying appliance and be accompanied by proof of purchase and product information. Rebates may be limited to one per customer for some equipment types although this is not always the case. In order to be eligible for a rebate, consumers must be customers of an electric utility that collects the Societal Benefits Charge on customer bills. The electric utilities that do this are Atlantic City Electric; Jersey Central Power & Light; PSE&G Electric; and Rockland Electric Company. This limitation applies to the refrigerator/freezer recycling program but does not apply to energy efficient lighting incentives.

For further information on the program please consult the program website.
