    ESCP credits are only applied against the regulated transmission and delivery portion of the electricity or gas bill for qualified users, not to the entire utility bill. In the area of Manhattan south of the center line of 96th Street, ECSP is ONLY available to manufacturing businesses as defined by ECSP program rules. In addition to standard ECSP benefits, an additional benefit of 4.44 cents / kilowatt hour is available to businesses which install a distributed generation (cogeneration) system. Businesses making capital improvements must submit applications before the issuance of the project's building permit or start of renovation / construction work (if a permit is not required). Heating costs are not eligible under this program. Benefits are annually capped at $10,000 per employee. Additional restrictions may apply; contact SBS for a detailed description of program limitations and requirements. Applications must be submitted before June 30, 2023.
