We were made aware of New Jersey's clean energy program by one of our patients. It was such an easy process to determine that we were eligible for funds through a free energy audit. Tri-State Light & Energy walked us through the process and kept us informed of the work that would be involved. It was very easy and they were a pleasure to work with. The technicians that came to the office were very respectful of our needs with our patient hours and extremely accommodating. They arrived early to complete work in the patient areas prior to our patient hours so it did not cause us to lose any treatment time. I highly recommend this program and the savings were tremendous.
