This rebate is part of the Blue Collar Jobs Act, which establishes tax breaks for businesses that have sustainable jobs and make significant investments in the state.

Firms meeting the criteria for targeted industry tax credits are eligible for a rebate of 50 percent of the public utilities tax imposed on new or increased consumption of natural gas and electricity for four years. The public utilities tax rate is 4.25 percent. The utility tax on the consumption of electric by licensed manufacturers and food or agribusiness processors is reduced from 4.25 percent to 2 percent.
