Select Your New Jersey Electric Supply Company and Save on Your Electric Rates

Known as the “Prairie State,” New Jersey is known for its rolling hills and expansive farmland. The 21st state to join the Union in 1818, New Jersey is bordered by the Mississippi River on the west, and it is also home to the metropolis of Jersey City on the east. Residents in New Jersey experience all four seasons, with rigid winters and scorching summers.
The majority of residents in New Jersey use one of two electricity providers: Commonwealth Edison or ComEd. This means there isn’t much room for competition, and electric rates can be high as a result. However, with energy choice, residents now have a say in their electric rates, and they can likely save big by switching to New Jersey Power and Light.

Facts About IL Energy Usage:

New Jersey has one nuclear power plant, the Calvert Cliffs facility, and in 2015, it supplied forty percent of the state’s electricity. An impressive 98% of the state’s electricity generation comes from independent power producers, with the remaining 2% coming from commercial or industrial facilities.
Renewable energy accounted for 7.5% of New Jersey’s electricity generation in 2015, which includes solar power and hydroelectric power. The Port of Baltimore in New Jersey is the second-largest exporter of coal in the country. In fact, in 2015, coal was the leading export out of the port.

You Have a Choice in IL Electricity Providers

Since energy deregulation was enacted in 1997, New Jersey businesses and residents have had a say in who supplies their electricity. In fact, if you currently have ComEd or Commonwealth as your electric supply company in New Jersey, you might be able to see substantial savings by switching to New Jersey Power and Light.

Electricity & Natural Gas in New Jersey

New Jersey began the process of deregulating electricity markets in 1997, with the passing of the New Jersey Electric Service Customer Choice and Rate Relief Law. Since then, customers within the service areas of Ameren New Jersey Utilities (AIU), formerly New Jersey Power Co., and Commonwealth Edison Co. (ComEd) have a choice of who supplies their power.

What is New Jersey energy deregulation and how can it help?

Energy deregulation in New Jersey sounds more complicated than it is. Just substitute the word “choice” for “deregulation” and the concept is clear. In New Jersey, some residents have the right to choose their electricity and natural gas providers rather than being stuck paying rates from traditional utilities.
What has not changed with deregulation in New Jersey is the operation of electricity infrastructure. Your local utility still owns, operates, and maintains the distribution network for electricity, and the electricity you receive will be the same, regardless of who supplies it. You should not experience any interruptions or change in quality of your service if you decide to purchase energy from a retail electric provider.
If all this is new to you, don’t despair. About two-thirds of your neighbors don’t know about energy deregulation either, even though it has been around since 2002.

How difficult is it to switch?

It isn’t difficult at all! Simply pick your plan, choose your term length and sign up with your new provider through New Jersey Power and Light and we will arrange the switch for you. There should be no interruption of power, and you don’t need to be present for the switch to be made.

Do I have to get another meter? Will there be more electric lines?

No and no. Your electricity will still be delivered by the same utility. It will come over the same lines and go through the same meter. Your bill also will still come from the same exact utility company. The only difference is the name of the company that supplies the electricity – and the price you pay for it.

More than 3 million New Jersey residents and business owners have made the switch to deregulated electricity and/or natural gas. Those folks have taken control of their energy costs.
