Incentive TypeTax
Incentive Administrator/Contact OfficeNew Jersey Board of Public Utilities
Incentive Initiation Date12/3/2009
Incentive Size and Funding SourceAmendments to New Jersey bills P.L.1999, c.23, and P.L.1997, c.162 were adopted on December 3, 2009. These bills provide a sales and use tax exemption for the purchase of natural gas and utility service for on-site cogeneration facilities and the amendments allow the ability to "wheel" power to district energy thermal customers through CHP. Specifically, the December 3, 2009 Act amends "contiguous property" to include buildings that are served by district thermal energy (heating and or cooling pipes) to be considered "contiguous to the on-site cogeneration facility" and therefore eligible to receive electricity from the on-site cogeneration facility via the local utility wires at standard prevailing tariff rate.
