PROGRAM UPDATE- Eatontown Community Energy Aggregation

2/16/16

As described in detail below, the Borough of Eatontown established the Eatontown Community Energy Aggregation (ECEA) program, and awarded a contract to South Jersey Energy Company for the provision of power supply to Borough residents at a price of $.08238 per kilowatt-hour. This rate is approximately 19% lower than the average JCP&L tariff price for power supply! Residents who do not currently have a third party supply contract or do not have a rooftop solar power system were included in the initial program eligibility pool. Those residents received a mailer from South Jersey Energy in early January 2016, describing the program and providing instructions on how to ‘opt-out’ of the program if they did not wish to participate in the program.
The initial opt-out period for the ECEA Program has now been completed. Those residents who received the program notification last month, and did not opt-out of the program, will be enrolled by the program supplier, South Jersey Energy, for service beginning with your March 2016 meter read date. If you did not opt-out of the program, you should have received a letter from JCP&L in mid-February 2016 confirming the enrollment of your account with South Jersey Energy. This letter is merely a confirmation, and there is no further action that you need to do in order to participate in the ECEA Program and to begin enjoying the estimated 19% savings on the power supply portion of your bill. You would only need to respond to the JCP&L letter if you do not wish to participate in the OBCEA program.
Please be advised that is has come to the Borough’s attention that in their recent letter to Borough residents JCP&L has provided an out-of-date customer service number for South Jersey Energy. If you tried to call South Jersey Energy via the phone number provided by JCP&L in its recent letter you likely encountered problems. The correct phone number for residents to reach South Jersey Energy is 1-(888) 811-9078.
