The Milestone Reporting Form must be submitted by the Applicant as a baseline report with the REIP Application Packet and quarterly thereafter, including any extensions if applicable, that may be granted to the initial approval period, until the Final As-Built Packet is submitted. Quarterly reports are due within two weeks of the end of the quarters ending on March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31. Biopower projects approved prior to 12/31/13 should also complete this form as instructed above.
Wind Application Packet
NOTICE: The wind rebate program is temporarily on hold for new applications
Submit a Final As-Built Packet for Wind or Biopower
Once the system is installed, has passed the local inspection, and received interconnection from the utility, the system is ready to be scheduled for a program inspection.
Applicants must submit a complete Final As-Built Packet as per the Final As-Built Checklist. This is applicable for all biopower projects participating in the REIP regardless of project approval year. A complete packet must be submitted to the Market Manager prior to the project expiration date. If your system will not be completed prior to the expiration date, you may be able to apply for an extension. Review the REIP biopower project extension policy to see if you are eligible. The EDC notification is the only document that can be submitted after the expiration date. However, the project will not be scheduled for an inspection or receive an inspection waiver until a complete Final As-Built Packet has been received. Therefore, until the system has passed inspection or received the waiver letter, it will not receive an NJ certification number, which is needed to generate RECs.
The Final As-Built Packet includes:
- Final As-Built Checklist for Wind
- 2011 Wind Technical Worksheet
- Final As-Built Checklist for Biopower (updated Jan 2012)
- Final As-Built Technical Worksheet - Biopower Equipment (updated Jan 2012)
- ANSI C12.1-2008 Certified Meter Worksheet (Required for all wind and biopower projects - updated Jun 2012). See Metering Requirements.
- NJ Tax Clearance Certificate (only needed for PPAs, commercial entities, farms and non-profits)
