Residential Energy Affordability Partnership (REAP) Program
Save on Your Electric Bill
Eligible customers may qualify to have energy-saving appliances and devices installed in their homes for FREE.
Since last year, we have limited our in-home audit programs to help keep everyone safe. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
PSEG Long Island is offering both in-home energy surveys and Remote Energy Assessments (REAs) for eligible customers. For an REA, an Energy Advisor will serve as the technical expert, providing personalized guidance and energy education during the assessment process, focused on providing you with an education on energy use patterns, energy saving tips, referrals for other assistance programs, with the goal of providing an impactful customer experience throughout the entire process. While performing the remote energy assessment with your Energy Advisor, you will go through the entire home, room by room, obtaining information for eligibility in replacing inefficient measures - allowing you to play an active role in making your home energy efficient, safer and healthier! If you choose an in-home energy assessment, a partner will visit your home to conduct a standard home energy audit. All partners will adhere to NYS COVID-19 safety requirements.
If you are interested in lowering your energy costs through a FREE Home Energy Survey with REAP complete an application.
How does REAP work?
REAP helps income-eligible customers lower their energy costs by finding household energy-saving opportunities. If you qualify to participate, a REAP technician will visit your home or connect remotely to determine the energy efficiency of your appliances and other devices. There is no cost for the home energy survey.
During the home energy survey, either in-home or remotely, the REAP technician will talk to you about ways you can reduce your energy consumption. The technician may also install energy-saving measures at no cost to you or have them delivered to you if you choose an REA. The technician will select the energy-efficient devices that will have the greatest impact based on your individual circumstances, possibly including:
- High-Efficiency LED (light-emitting diode) Light Bulbs
ENERGY STAR-certified LEDs produce light very efficiently, last 25 times longer than a traditional bulb, and use 75% less energy.
- Energy-Efficient Appliances
ENERGY STAR-certified room air conditioners use about 15% less energy than conventional models. ENERGY STAR-certified dehumidifiers are more efficient than conventional models and remove the same amount of moisture, but use 15% less energy. ENERGY STAR-certified refrigerators use less energy and help reduce the impact on the environment.
- Electric Water Heater Pipe Insulation
(For electric hot water heater customers only.) Insulating hot water heater pipes assists in reducing heat loss. This can allow you to lower your water temperature setting to save money.
- Energy-Efficient Water Flow Devices
(For electric hot water heater customers only.) Low-flow devices help save money by reducing water consumption and decreasing the amount of electricity (or gas) needed to heat the water.
