About JCP&L's Direct Install for Small Businesses

Direct Install will help you improve your facility's energy performance while making upgrading to energy efficient equipment easy and affordable. Aside from reducing your monthly energy costs, the program offers incentives for qualifying upgrades with 0% financing for up to five years. No out of pocket costs plus better performing lighting and equipment means a healthier, safer, easier to maintain facility.

Benefits of Direct Install

  • Drastically reduce your maintenance costs
  • Increase your facility’s value
  • Lower your utility bills
  • Turnkey project - we take care of everything from permits to recycling removed materials
  • Replace your aging lighting (indoor/outdoor LEDs), Heating, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration with high-quality, energy saving equipment

The Direct Install Process

  1. We conduct a free, no-obligation, on-site energy assessment of your facility.
  2. After reviewing the assessment results, we give you a proposal that includes qualifying energy efficiency measures and JCP&L’s approved incentive towards your project.
  3. You approve the proposal and we prepare for the installation of top of the line energy-saving equipment that will cut your energy costs significantly.
