How does energy choice work in New Jersey?
When an energy choice bill passed in 1999, New Jersey electric consumers were given the ability to choose what electric company supplies their power. Consumers in Southern New Jersey who have Atlantic City Electric no longer have to purchase their supply from it. New Jersey electricity consumers have the option to pick a third-party supplier that offers alternative energy supply rates.
Learn about Atlantic City Electric as a supplier
Customers who live within the utility's service area have the option of keeping it as their supplier. The government regulates utility electric supply rates and these rates can fluctuate with the market price of electricity. Supply rates have the potential to change twice a year and may not always be the best option for a customer's home or business. However, in the New Jersey energy choice market, if customers would prefer a more predictable energy plan, they can choose third-party NJ electric suppliers that offer longer-term fixed-rate supply plans that may work better for their energy needs.
