Government Energy Aggregation Program
Welcome to the Residential Energy Aggregation web page for the Sussex-Warren Area Energy Cooperative (SWAEC). On this page you will find information specific to the SWAEC program. Feel free to browse the rest of our site for other general energy aggregation information.
SWAEC's current energy aggregation program began in March 2019 and provides a reduced electricity rate for residents in the Township of Fredon (Lead Agency), the Borough of Alpha, Andover Borough, Branchville, Blairstown Township, Frelinghuysen Township, Green Township, Hardwick Township, Harmony Township, Hope Township, Knowlton Township, Oxford Township, the Town of Phillipsburg, the Borough of Stanhope and Stillwater Township. The current SWAEC program rate is $.0886/kWh.
For participating towns except Frelinghuysen Township* and Knowlton Township*, beginning with the first meter read on or after June 1, 2020, the program rate for the remainder of the current program term (through January 1, 2021) will be reduced from $0.0886/kWh to $0.0869/kWh. In addition to the reduction in the program rate, the program term is being extended beginning from the first meter read on or after January 1, 2021, for an additional 12 months until the first meter read after December 31, 2021.
Additional information is provided below under the headings "Program Details" and "Program Documents". Residents can also call 866-688-5197 to speak with a program specialist.
*Frelinghuysen Township and Knowlton Township are not participating in the program extension. As such, the program rate of $.0886/kWh will remain in effect for their residents through December 31, 2020, after which any residents participating in the SWAEC program will be returned to the Basic Generation Service providers through JCP&L with their first meter read after December 31, 2020. Residents should contact their municipality with questions related to the governing body's decision to discontinue participation in the SWAEC energy aggregation program.
