May 2014 Town Hall

Energy Aggregation & What it Means for You

My Town Hall meeting for May will be a workshop on the Energy Aggregation program under consideration by the Township Council for the benefit of Bloomfield residents.

Energy aggregation is an increasing popular strategy that many towns in New Jersey are using to help residents save money on their utility bills. Participating towns are able to negotiate with the same buying power as large industrial customers by pooling the buying power of their residents. Participating residents are guaranteed to receive rates lower than those charged by their local utility company.

The New Jersey Government Energy Aggregation (GEA) program was created in 2003 by the New Jersey Legislature and is overseen by the NJ Board of Public Utilities (BPU). All Bloomfield residents who have not already chosen a third-party power supplier would be automatically opted-in If the township decides to move forward with the program, but will be able to opt-out of the program before it starts or at any other time with no penalty. Supply delivery and billing would still be handled by PSE&G, so the only thing that Bloomfield residents would notice are lower costs on their utility bills.

This workshop will be presented by representatives from Commercial Utility Consultants (CUC), an independent consultant selected by the BPU to manage energy aggregation programs for New Jersey municipalities.

All Bloomfield residents are welcome and encouraged to attend this workshop. Light refreshments will be served.

Please come to find out how you can save money on your energy bills with energy aggregation!
