Your system upgrades will help you save energy long-term and will pay for themselves over time.

Private Generation

Private generation, such as combined heat and power or fuel-cell systems, may help lower your energy bills and make your building more resilient.

Commercial customers and multifamily buildings in qualifying areas of Brooklyn and Queens may be eligible for incentives for installing private generation systems that reduce electric demand.

We are not accepting new project applications at this time.

Funding and project eligibility deadlines are determined by your electric network. This is a “pay-for-performance” program. Incentives are provided in two parts:

  1. An installation payment, equaling 50% of incentive, once the system is installed and interconnected by the applicable project deadline.
  2. A performance payment, of up to 50%, after completing a summer performance verification period from May 1 to September 30.

This program includes a security against underperformance requirement. For more information about program requirements and other terms and conditions, see the sample Non-Wires Alternatives Program Agreement and Addendum 2 for Private Generation. In addition, the project must interconnect with the Standardized Interconnection Requirements, and applicants should be familiar with private generation information and the applicable guides and specifications for private generation.

Please email us for more information.
