PSE&G - Commercial Efficiency Program

June 17, 2015


The PSE&G Small Business Direct Install Program provides recommended efficiency upgrades to business customers with an electric demand of less than 150 kilowatts(kW) or 40,300 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per month. PSE&G provides a walk-through energy evaluation, and a report of recommended energy efficiency improvements. PSE&G will initially cover the cost of installing the recommended energy efficiency measures. See the program web site for repayment details. Typical energy efficiency improvements available through this sub-program include: Lighting upgrades, insulation, refrigeration upgrades, and HVAC upgrades.

The Hospital Efficiency Sub-program is targeted to health care facilities located in PSE&G’s electric and/or gas service territory. The sub-program is targeted specifically to in-patient hospitals and other in-patient medical facilities that operate 24-7. The energy efficiency measures recommended by the IGA may include lighting, HVAC, humidification, ventilation, motors, energy management systems, and other energy consuming equipment. Traditionally, the program will buy-down the simple payback of project costs for approved measures to as low as 2 years.  Remaining costs will be provided by PSE&G and may be repaid by the participant, interest free, on their PSE&G utility bill over a three-year period after the final inspection.

Technical and financial assistance is also available for Warehouse owners seeking to increase energy savings via lighting retrofits and data centers seeking to make energy efficiency upgrades.  For warehouse owners, a comprehensive audit and buy-down of the cost is available. Contact PSE&G for details on commercial and industrial programs.
