2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill requires retail motor fuel dealers, motor fuel wholesales, motor fuel terminal facilities, motor fuel refineries, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, subacute rehabilitation facilities, and newly constructed grocery stores (collectively, "eligible businesses") to be equipped with and employ a generator in the event of a power outage. The bill also requires the New Jersey Economic Development Authority ("authority") to offer financial assistance in the form of low-interest loans to eligible businesses for the purchase and installation of a generator. The authority must begin accepting applications no later than 91 days after the enactment of the bill and must begin approving the applications within a reasonable time thereafter. An eligible business that sustains physical damage to the business itself, or to the business's generator, during a disaster are exempt from the requirements of the bill. The bill outlines a series of penalties for eligible businesses that fail to use a generator during the course of a power outage.
