Utility Incentives


New Jersey SmartStart Building Program

The New Jersey SmartStart Building Program provides:

  • Design support for large development projects (buildings over 50,000 square feet)
  • Technical assistance for smaller projects (buildings under 50,000 square feet)
  • Financial incentives for the purchase and installation of energy efficient equipment

Orange and Rockland-New Jersey Job Development Rate (JDR)

Businesses considering relocation to the Orange and Rockland service territory (see map below), or current commercial and industrial customers that are considering an expansion either at their current location or moving to a larger location, may be eligible for an electric Job Development Rate (JDR). This rate provides a 20% reduction on the delivery portion of the customer's bills for three years. 

Eligible customers must lease or purchase building space that equals or exceeds 7,500 square feet. They must operate under Manufacturing or Business Service category as described by the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). Customers must apply for the JDR before beginning construction of a new or expanded building, before closing on a purchase, or before signing a lease for existing building. Customers must also be receiving the benefits of a comprehensive package of economic incentives conferred by a county, local or state authority designed to increase employment levels within the service territory. 

For more information about this program or to receive a JDR application, please contact Toni Graziano at 201-236-6009.
