South Jersey Gas On-Bill Repayment Program
The South Jersey Gas On-Bill Repayment Program is designed to encourage the installation of high efficiency measures to increase the energy efficiency of your home.
By making improvements to your home, you can receive immediate benefits. Here are just a few of them:
- Immediate bill savings. Efficiency upgrades decrease your energy consumption and your utility bills.
- The changes you make can:
- Save you money
- Increase your home comfort
- Improve your home’s value
- Improve your indoor air quality
- Make your home more resilient against the impacts of climate change, like extreme high and low temperatures and more pollutants in the air
How can I qualify?
- Loan applicant must be the property owner.
- Gas utility bill must be and remain in the property owner’s name until the loan is paid back in full.
- If all or any part of the property or any interest in the property is sold or transferred without the gas utility’s prior written consent, the utility may require immediate payment in full of all money then owed under the on-bill repayment agreement.
- If the utility account is closed for any reason, immediate payment in full of all money then owed under the on-bill repayment agreement may be required.
- Eligibility for the on-bill repayment program is based in part on your utility bill payment history with South Jersey Gas, and we will require you to submit a copy of a recent utility bill, showing the service address, and gas and electric usage.
- If you don’t have 12 months of utility history with South Jersey Gas, determination for on-bill repayment program eligibility will be based on your general credit history (As part of the Credit Application process we will request a copy of your credit history).
