Government Energy Aggregation Program


The Borough of North Plainfield passed an ordinance, which became effective on October 12, 2014 to establish the North Plainfield Energy Community Choice Program. This program is a Government-Private energy aggregation program that will permit the municipality to aggregate residential and non-residential electric consumers in North Plainfield for the purpose of purchasing electricity at lower rates than currently available from the utility company (PSE&G). By combining the electric requirements of the residential, industrial, commercial and public entity accounts, the program can purchase energy from Third Party Electricity Suppliers at prices lower than the average PSE&G price, with the possibility of added benefits such as higher renewable energy content. The program is only for the electric supply portion of your electric service.
