Multi-Measure: Customer Tailored

Note:  Select energy efficiency programs for existing buildings have transitioned to the utility companies

To learn more about this transition and for utility contact information, please visit this page.

NJCEP Pay for Performance (P4P) for existing buildings and NJCEP Direct Install will no longer accept applications starting July 1, 2021. All eligible applications accepted before that time will continue with NJCEP until final payment.

PSE&G customers who purchased electric or natural gas energy efficiency equipment prior to June 1, 2021 may be eligible for SmartStart Buildings (SSB) and/or Customer Tailored Energy Efficiency Program (CTEEP) rebates. For non-PSE&G customers, equipment purchased prior to July 1, 2021, may be eligible for SSB and CTEEP rebates.

NJCEP’s SmartStart Buildings (SSB), Customer Tailored Energy Efficiency Program (CTEEP), and Pay for Performance (P4P) programs will remain available for new construction projects and major gut renovation projects only beginning on July 1, 2021. 

 Overview

The Customer Tailored Energy Efficiency Pilot (CTEEP) Program supplements the current New Jersey Commercial and Industrial incentive programs by offering a streamlined approach to developing and implementing energy efficiency projects for mid-to-large C&I customers.

CTEEP allows customers to bundle multiple SmartStart prescriptive and custom measures at one or more project locations into one application without enrolling in a whole-building program.

Customers who enroll begin the process with an on-site kick-off meeting with program management to discuss measures, program requirements and process and to perform a building walkthrough.

Eligibility

Eligible sectors may include but are not limited to K-12 schools, colleges or universities, hospitals, large office buildings, multistory retail, industrial and manufacturing. There is no minimum energy savings requirement per measure or per project.

As of July 1, 2021, this program serves New Construction and Substantial Renovation projects only. For assistance with new projects in Existing Buildings, visit this page for information on programs administered by the electric and gas utilities. Certain equipment purchased prior to transition may be eligible for CTEEP incentives; please contact us to discuss.

Process

  • Enrollment and Scoping Meeting - Engage with an Outreach representative to learn more about how NJCEP aligns with your needs. A representative can speak to you over the phone or visit your facility. If CTEEP is deemed to be a good fit, submit an Enrollment Form and conduct a scoping meeting with NJCEP program staff. The scoping meeting is intended to bring together all relevant parties to review the measures and formally define the development criteria for the Energy Plan.
  • Develop and Submit Energy Plan - Complete the program documents and collect necessary scope of work documentation (utility bills, specification sheets, savings calculations, etc.) identified by NJCEP program staff during the scoping meeting. Your case manager is available to assist you along the way and will review the Energy Plan to calculate and commit measure incentives for your project.
  • Installation of Measures – Technical assistance incentives are paid at milestones throughout the construction process.
  • Substantial Completion Incentive Payment - Measure incentives are paid upon submittal of project completion documents.
  • Performance Verification Incentive Payment - For Custom Measures only: The final installment of the measure incentive is paid upon successful completion of performance verification, which is intended to demonstrate that measures are installed and operating as intended.
