NEWARK, N.J. - September 12, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Today, The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (Board) and its Clean Energy Program™ (NJCEP) held the 2017 Clean Energy Conference and Awards Ceremony in partnership with the New Jersey Institute of Technology's (NJIT) Clean Energy Learning Center. Board Commissioners, Joseph L. Fiordaliso, Mary-Anna Holden, Dianne Solomon, and Upendra J. Chivukula participated in the full-day symposium and provided information on cutting edge energy efficiency products and systems, and updates on New Jersey's Clean Energy Program.
"For the past 15 years, New Jersey's Clean Energy Program, in conjunction with its partners, has worked diligently to reduce the amount of energy consumed by residents and businesses throughout the State," said Commissioner Fiordaliso. "These accomplishments reduce the cost of energy for all ratepayers and provide for a cleaner environment."
Over the last 15 years, New Jersey has invested more than $3.1 billion in approximately 1.5 million energy saving projects that have reduced electric use by approximately 10 percent - enough energy savings compounded over 15 years to power about 3.1 million homes.
Since 2003, NJCEP has promoted the increased use of efficiency energy products and clean and renewable energy sources. The results for New Jersey are a stronger economy, less pollution, lower energy costs, and reduced demand for energy. NJCEP offers financial incentives, programs, and services for residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, and governmental customers to implement energy efficiency and clean and renewable energy sources in their homes and businesses.
NJCEP is recognizing the accomplishments by program participants and trade allies that have helped customers save money on their utility bills reduce their energy demand and their environmental impacts. Awards were based on projects completed in Fiscal Year 2017 utilizing new Jersey's Clean Energy Program and that maximized energy savings by using a comprehensive, "whole building" approach including:
"As part of our multi-year partnership with the Board, the NJIT Center for Building Knowledge has created and currently maintains the New Jersey Clean Energy Learning Center - a new online resource that provides high impact education and training across all aspects of the Clean Energy Program," said Deane Evans Executive Director of NJIT's Center for Building Knowledge. "This conference is one of the Learning Center's core activities for calendar year 2017, and we are pleased to welcome stakeholders from across the state to NJIT to learn, network and exchange ideas that can keep New Jersey at the forefront of clean energy innovation nationwide."
Additionally, the NJCEP acknowledged the 10 contractors to receive the ENERGY STAR 2017 Century Club Award. This award recognizes contractors who have completed 100 or more comprehensive Home Performance projects in one year. These winners delivered 74 percent of NJCEP's completions in 2016.
