Burlington County Aggregation Program coming to CinnaminsonPublished 07/05/2016
Burlington County Aggregation Program to begin for Cinnaminson residents
Cinnaminson’s Township Committee has elected to participate in the Burlington County Energy Aggregation Program. These government energy aggregation programs allow municipalities to pool together the usage of all residents in order to help them obtain a lower electric supply rate. Basically, this means we are working together to bring all of the residential electric demand for our residents into one large group. As you can imagine, the buying power of a massive group is much better than that of individual households. Through this “aggregation of energy” we are working to achieve a savings for our residents. This process is something that will be seamless and there will be no interruption or inconvenience to you.
In mid-June all electric generators who conduct business in NJ competed in a bid for the right to provide the electricity at the LOWEST possible cost to you. Based upon that bidding process, a vendor, TriEagle Energy LP (“TriEagle”), was selected to provide the energy at a savings. Despite the fact that TriEagle will provide the energy, PSE&G still owns and operates the electric lines and they will be responsible for the delivery of the energy to your household.
You should also note that the bid for this electric supply has very specific requirements that will only permit the continued supply of energy if it is lower and will remain lower for the term of the award. At no point in time will the cost of your electricity be higher than it would be if PSE&G was the provider of the service.
No doubt you will have questions so we have listed answers to the most common questions about a process like this.
There is absolutely nothing you need to do to get the new reduced residential electric rate. It is all being handled for you.
– All current services like delivery of the electric, meter readings, billing, payments, emergency services, etc. are still handled by PSE&G.
– You will continue to receive only one bill.
– The savings you get only applies to the supply portion of the electric bill. There won’t be a change to the delivery charges on the bill.
– The rate offered is locked-in for the term of the contract and offers protection for residents that are generally not available to individual rate payers.
– There will be no change to any budget billing.
– There are no fees to be part of the program. It is free for you to enjoy the savings.
– You may choose not to participate in the program and receive the savings and there is no penalty or fee to opt-out of the program.
– You will continue to call, write, log into PSE&G for any service related questions.
– The new rate will be displayed directly on your bill and you will be able to easily compare the new rate against the rate of PSE&G at any time.
– All information about the program will be mailed to you. No one will ever call you or solicit door-to-door regarding this program. As always, please be wary of anyone trying to sell you services over the telephone or by simply showing up at your door.
– We are all in this together. By joining together, we will pool our energy needs and achieve a savings.
