New Jersey Public Benefit Funds for Energy Efficiency

A societal benefits charge (SBC) funds continuation of pre-restructuring demand side management programs. In March 2001, the Board of Public Utilities approved a statewide comprehensive energy efficiency and renewable energy program that includes a low-income energy efficiency component called New Jersey Comfort Partners. The program, in which seven major electric and gas utilities participate, is funded at about $30 million yearly. See electric utility restructuring legislation.
