LCEA: Livingston Community Energy Aggregation Program

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Letters or solicitations relating to energy aggregation that do not include the official Township logo are not a part of the official LCEA program.

All information relating to the Township's official LCEA program will feature the Township logo on the outside of the envelope and on the letter and FAQ sheet. 

Opt-Out vs. Opt-In: NJ State Law

State of New Jersey law for the Board of Public Utilities, as stated in N.J.A.C. 14:4-6.3 (i) states that all municipal energy aggregation programs in New Jersey must be opt-out rather than opt-in programs. 

(i) If a residential customer is located within the geographic boundaries of a municipality or county that establishes a government private energy aggregation program, the residential customer shall automatically be included in the program unless the customer indicates [its] his or her desire not to participate in the program by opting-out in accordance with N.J.A.C. 14:4-6.5 and 6.6.

Therefore, the Livingston Community Energy Aggregation Program must be an opt-out program, rather than an opt-in program.
