Pay for Performance Program Partners
|The next deadline for submitting Pay for Performance Partnership Agreement applications is September 20, 2013, by close of business, Eastern Standard Time.|
What is Pay for Performance?
The Pay for Performance Program comprehensively addresses the energy efficiency needs of the commercial and industrial sector by working with participants, such as developers, building owners and their representatives, to improve energy efficiency of commercial and industrial buildings. Pay for Performance is comprised of an Existing Buildings component and a New Construction component.
How do I get involved?
A critical component of Pay for Performance is the development of a network of program partners.
In order to become a Pay for Performance partner you must fill out and submit an application package by the set deadline. The Partnership Agreement and the Submission Requirements listed within the agreement will act as your application to become a Pay for Performance partner.
You may submit an application package for either the Existing Buildings component or the New Construction component or both.
Two documents are available to assist you in completing your Partnership Agreement.
Partnership Agreement Checklist - Please use this checklist to make sure you have submitted all the required documentation and include this checklist with your submission.
Case Study Template - Please use this template to outline the information we will be looking for when we review your experience on previous projects.
Once you have completed your Partnership Agreement please submit one hardcopy and one electronic copy - PDF preferred, or three hardcopies to TRC Energy Services. Hardcopies can be mailed to:
Pay for Performance Program
TRC Energy Services
900 Route 9 North Suite 404
Woodbridge, NJ 07095
Electronic copies can be emailed to P4P@NJCleanEnergy.com
A panel will review your application package and we will notify you if you have been accepted to the program within 3 weeks of the submittal deadline. You will then be required to participate in a 1-day orientation session for each component for which you were approved. Keep in mind that you cannot submit new projects to the program until you have successfully participated in the orientation.
If you have any additional questions regarding the program or the application please forward them to P4P@NJCleanEnergy.com.
When are the deadlines?
Deadlines are usually set in March and September. Email P4P@NJCleanEnergy.com for information on exact days or check the website for updates..
Who can qualify to become a partner?
The main qualification of a partner is evidence of having previously acted in a lead capacity on at least three commercial and industrial projects for which comprehensive energy efficiency scopes of work were developed and fully implemented. Experience with energy auditing and building energy modeling is required. The qualifications are described in detail in the Partnership Agreement.
Typical partners include architecture, engineering, and energy consulting firms, including ESCOs.
Customers with large buildings (≥750 kW demand) or a campus of buildings may request to have internal staff qualified as a partner. Internal staff may include Professional Engineers, Certified Energy Manager, facilities personnel, etc. If approved, internal staff is only allowed to represent their customer’s building(s) in the program. This opportunity will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the Market Manager. All other program requirements will be in effect.
How will I get paid?
As a Pay for Performance partner, you will work directly with the program participant and negotiate applicable fees. All program incentives will be paid directly to the participant. Partners will be paid by the participants, NOT by the program.
