The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, in partnership with the New Jersey Economic Development Authority, offers local governments and schools a low-interest, long-term financing program that allows them to combine traditional energy efficiency and renewable energy incentive programs. Financing under this program will cover the entire incremental cost of energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, enabling the governmental entities to finance the projects with no up front capital costs.

The Clean Energy Financing Program can be combined with the New Jersey Clean Energy Program's incentives for a wide range of energy efficient technologies and renewable energy systems. For a listing of the incentives for specific energy efficient technologies, please visit the Smart Start Buildings webpage at For details on the renewable energy rebate program, please visit the website at
