Renewable Energy Incentive Program
Thousands of New Jersey homeowners, businesses, and municipalities are incorporating clean, renewable energy into their everyday lives with help from New Jersey's Clean Energy Program. You can take advantage of this program to save energy and lower your utility bills.
By investing in renewable energy, you can help protect the environment, reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, and lessen our carbon footprint. Whether it's for your home or your business, New Jersey's Clean Energy Program makes using renewable energy technologies affordable, practical, and just plain smart.
Incentives for sustainable biopower projects and for energy storage projects are currently under development, with competitive solicitations for each of those technologies expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2013. Please note that the wind program is currently on hold.
New solar projects are no longer eligibile for REIP incentives, but can register for Solar Renewable Energy Certificates (SRECs) through the SREC Registration Program (SRP).
Recently the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities and the Department of Community Affairs announced they will develop a DVD that local fire departments can use to teach firefighters about safety in fighting fires in or around solar and wind system. Read the Board Order here.
