Energy Savings Improvement Plans: Energy Performance Contracts in New Jersey 

Webinar Date:
      April 20, 2017 at 2:00 pm ET

New Jersey’s Energy Savings Improvement Plan (ESIP) statute enables State-owned facilities to participate in Energy Savings Performance Contracting. The ESIP statute provides a funding mechanism which enables our State-owned facilities to purchase replacement or upgrades to equipment without the outlay of capital funds. Post implementation utility budgets are fixed to prior year allocations for 15-years. The delta between the current energy use and the reduced energy use provides available funds to repay the debt. NJ has adopted a multi-phased approach, consisting of preliminary energy audit, solicitation of ESCOs, Investment Grade Audit/Energy Savings Plan adoption, Energy Conservation Measure Design phase through Bidding, Funding, Construction, Measurement and Verification. Still in the program’s infancy, we have entered into four performance contracts with Energy Service Companies at a very diversified group of facilities.

Review of some common Energy Conservation Measures will be discussed. Renewable energy using solar PV and cogeneration has proven to be a valuable tool in our project make-up and will be discussed as well.
