SmartStart Buildings

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.
