MAYS LANDING, N.J. (Aug. 3, 2017) –
Atlantic City Electric has launched its new Energy Discounts for Growing
Enterprises (EDGE) program, in an effort to help promote economic growth and
job creation in South Jersey. This new program is designed to help retain local
businesses, attract new business to the area and encourage business expansion.
The EDGE Program
offers new and existing businesses, small and large, a 20 percent discount off
the electric delivery distribution portion of their rate based on certain
qualifications. The discount would be effective for a five-year period as long
as a business continues to meet eligibility requirements. A business must also
be located in one of the eight counties served by Atlantic City Electric.
“We are a proud
community partner who remains committed to our customers, employees and neighbors.
We want to do our part to encourage economic development, create job
opportunities for local residents and support business growth throughout our
service territory,” said Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president.
“In addition to the EDGE Program, our commitment to the communities we serve continues
through the hiring of new workers, creating workforce development initiatives,
providing energy assistance information to customers in need and encouraging
customers to take advantage of energy savings programs.”
To qualify for
either the small or large commercial business programs, an applicant must construct
a new building, purchase or lease an existing building that's been vacant or
expand an existing space. For a small business, the new space should be at
least 2,500 square feet and the company must hire at least one additional full
time employee. For a large business, the new space should be at least 8,000
square feet and the company must hire at least two additional full time
employees. Other qualifications apply.
