A big challenge to improving your facility’s energy efficiency is knowing where to start and how to navigate your utility company’s rebate process. Fortunately, CM3 can help.
As an approved Trade Ally and Direct Install contractor, CM3 works within your energy company’s Direct Install rebate program to identify and replace inefficient equipment with high-efficiency alternatives. Many customers qualify for a rebate up to 70% of their retrofit costs.
We also provide complete transparency regarding the project cost and savings opportunities. We conduct a complimentary site visit, followed by a detailed quotation that identifies each rebate that is available and exactly what the actual net costs will be.
Additionally, New Jersey Energy Companies provide a 60-month, interest-free loan to qualified entities for the remainder of their balance. This means in many cases the customer’s monthly loan could be covered almost entirely by their energy savings, resulting in minimal changes to the energy bill.
New Jersey businesses (non-residential customers) that have an average annual electric demand of 200 kW or less. (Customers with >200kw should reach out for information about other additional Clean Energy Program rebates available through your utility company, such as the Prescriptive & Custom Program and the Energy Management Program).
Most heating, cooling, refrigeration and lighting systems, such as:

Assessment: Schedule a complimentary energy assessment from CM3. We’ll conduct a site visit and review your utility bills.
Proposal: Our energy specialists compile the energy assessment, then we review the results with you, including which measures qualify, the amounts of all eligible incentives, and what your share of the project will cost. We’ll also include projected energy savings, so you can estimate your ROI.
Project Approval & Installation: You determine which energy savings measures to pursue and then contract with us to install those energy-saving upgrades. Your local utility company will conduct pre- and post-inspections of the work to ensure the job was completed in keeping with program rules.
Payments & Savings: You achieve ongoing energy savings through the installed upgrades. Payments for those upgrades can be made by paying it directly or by financing it through the utility company’s On Bill Repayment plan.
As building solutions advance to deliver increasing levels of energy efficiency, this efficiency can only be achieved if all systems are operating correctly. However, the complex infrastructure and changing use of buildings can result in performance that does not achieve its intended design. CM3’s Optimization Solutions help ensure maximum operational and energy efficiency, whether that is periodic maintenance activities or ongoing, monitoring solutions.
With Energy Solutions driven by advanced thinking and cutting edge technology, CM3 customers have reduced emissions and pollution, reduced energy consumption, and improved system efficiencies while creating a more comfortable and productive environment for building occupants.
The CM3 energy analysis service enables customers to have energy-related data collected prior to project design for the purposes of baselining consumption and identifying areas of waste through analytical methods.
You may know that you can use Performance Contract legislation as a budget-neutral approach to energy-efficiency projects at your facility, but that same legislation is also available to fund necessary capital projects. See how that works and what it can be used for in this quick guide.
As municipal entities strive for enhanced energy efficiency, CM3 continues to obtain the necessary certifications and approvals to deliver our energy efficiency services in accordance with program requirements, such as the New Jersey Clean Energy Program and Philadelphia’s Building Energy Performance Program.
Pursuing energy efficiency initiatives is easier than you might think for New Jersey’s small businesses. Through the New Jersey Clean Energy Direct Install Program (of which CM3 is an approved Trade Ally), customers can upgrade equipment with no out-of-pocket costs and receive significant incentives plus 0% financing for up to 5 years.
