Changes to Energy Savings Improvement Program (ESIP) - 02/01/2013
Assembly Bill No. 2313 modified the Energy Savings Improvement Program (ESIP) laws that are expected to help expedite the process and begin a State-wide initiative to reduce energy consumption. The new law was approved by Governor Chris Christie on September 19, 2012, and is known as P.L. 2012, c.55. The modifications provide greater clarity concerning the steps involved in implementing a successful ESIP and identifying the Board of Public Utilities (BPU) as the lead agency that will enforce the competitive nature of all future projects and provide general oversight.
