Summary

NOTE: Since June 20, 2013, the program has been managed by the NJ Board of Public Utilities (BPU) as a part of its Clean Energy Program. Applications should be directed to NJ BPU instead of NJ Economic Development Authority (EDA) who was previously was administering the program.


Eligibility:


The New Jersey Clean Energy Program (NJCEP) offers grants for the installation of combined heat and power (CHP) or fuel cell systems to commercial, industrial, and institutional entities (including non-profits and public entities). In order to qualify for incentives, the applicant must be a contributor to the Societal Benefits Charge (SBC). Equipment must be commercially available, permanently installed, and installed on the customer side of the meter. Expansions of existing facilities may be eligible, though only the incremental expansion will be eligible for the incentive. Systems must have at least a 10-year all inclusive warranty or service contract and must be sized to meet the customer's electrical load (no more than 100% of historical annual consumption or peak demand). Third-party owned systems are eligible and must comply with the 10-year minimum warranty or service contract requirement.


Program Description:


The incentives amount depends on different size of the system. The grant amounts are as follows:
