There will be a virtual Energy Aggregation Meeting to discuss the inception of a renewable energy program for the Township of Livingston’s PSE&G customers at 6:00 p.m. on February 23, 2021. The meeting will be livestreamed on the Township's Facebook page and the public can join via Zoom. Learn more here.
The Township's involvement in the Sustainable Essex Alliance Renewable Government Energy Aggregation (SEA R-GEA) program has led to an Energy Aggregation opportunity for PSE&G customers.
NJ State Law Require Opt-Out
In accordance with NJ State Regulations [N.J.A.C. 14:4-6.6 (i)], residents must be automatically enrolled (unless they already have a third-party supplier or utilize solar power). However, residents are not obligated to participate in the program and may ‘opt-out’ easily at any time if they so choose.
Please note that the informational packet sent to PSE&G customers in Livingston contained an OPT-OUT Card.
About Energy Aggregation Programs
Energy deregulation in New Jersey allows customers to choose their electricity and natural gas suppliers. This provides customers with a choice of competitive energy suppliers, while the delivery, transmission, and distribution of power remains the responsibility of the current, local, regulated power company, and service reliability remains steady.
When more people take advantage of deregulation, the marketplace responds accordingly. Almost all consumers in deregulated markets can benefit from lower electricity and natural gas prices. However, switching energy providers to save money can be complex.
The Township of Livingston is working with outside energy consultant Gabel Associates, which is assisting with the Sustainable Essex Alliance Renewable Government Energy Aggregation program (SEA R-GEA).
