Industry Trends
Funding Available for PSE&G Multifamily Program
.
For projects we have worked on to date, investments have ranged from $250,000 to $5 million and PSE&G has typically covered 30-50% of the total project cost, with the balance payable through on-bill financing.
.
If your portfolio includes properties with the following attributes, you could be a great candidate for this program:
.
  • Located in the PSE&G service territory
  • 100+ units
  • Central systems - HVAC and domestic hot water (or certain individual systems)
  • Equipment age: 15+ years
.
This is a significant, but limited time, opportunity to take advantage of available funding to enhance your assets, improve NOI, and offset capital reinvestment costs.

Here is a 2 minute video to help you contemplate key elements in managing the risk of moisture on your next project.
