Food Service Equipment Incentives

Note:  Select energy efficiency programs for existing buildings are transitioning 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.

For projects (single- or multi-measure) saving electricity and natural gas, aka “dual-fuel”, where gas or electric service, but not both, are provided by PSE&G should continue to apply to NJCEP’s SSB, CTEEP, and P4P existing buildings until the other utility programs launch.

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.

Money-Saving Solutions for Restaurants and Other Food Service Providers from New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program

Here’s some food for thought. Per square foot, restaurants use five to seven times the energy of other commercial facilities. For quick-service restaurants that specialize in high volume, that figure is closer to ten times the energy use of the typical office or retail store. Learn more.

In fact, the commercial food sector uses approximately $10 billion worth of energy each year. Where does it all go? On average, six percent is used for refrigeration, 13 percent goes to lighting, 18 percent is used for sanitation, 28 percent for heating, ventilation and air conditioning, and a massive 35 percent goes to food preparation.

While all of these elements are necessary to operate a restaurant or commercial food service department, equipment upgrades can make a huge impact on a facility's energy usage and profitability.

Read how Elijah's Promise used food service incentives coupled with the Direct Install Program to lower their energy bill by over $5,000 a month!

Take the first step to ensure your business receives its share of incentives. You’ll be on your way to improving your bottom line with savings you can count on, now and down the road.
