Government Energy Aggregation Program
Welcome to the Residential Energy Aggregation webpage for the Hunterdon Area Energy Cooperative (HAEC). On this page you will find information specific to the HAEC program. Feel free to browse the rest of our site for other general energy aggregation information.
The Hunterdon Energy Aggregation Cooperative (HAEC) Energy Aggregation Program’s current contract term will be ending with meters on or after November 30, 2021. Residential customers in the participating municipalities of Alexandria Township, Bethlehem Township, the Borough of Califon, Chester Township, the Town of Clinton, Delaware Township, the Borough of Frenchtown, the Borough of High Bridge, Kingwood Township, the City of Lambertville, Mendham Township, the Borough of Peapack and Gladstone, and Washington Township who did not opt-out of the program or contract with a different third party energy supplier began receiving their electricity supply through IDT Energy in March 2021.
In an effort to provide continued savings to residents participating in the energy aggregation program, the HAEC went out to energy auction on September 22 and October 20, 2021. Unfortunately, pricing received at the time of the auctions was higher than the current BGS rate with JCP&L, so the program cannot be continued after the current contract ends on November 30, 2021. Therefore, participating residents will be reenrolled with the BGS through JCP&L unless they select an alternative supplier.
Residents currently participating in the HAEC energy aggregation program will receive a letter from their municipality or the HAEC notifying them of their return to the Basic Generation Service and a switchover confirmation letter from JCP&L. Residents participating in the HAEC energy aggregation program have collectively saved over $1.4 Million since the cooperative was established in March 2019.
The HAEC anticipates soliciting bids again in Spring 2022. Residents should call the program’s energy consultants at 866-688-5197, option 3, with questions and for program updates.
Please come out and join us at an upcoming informational session to learn more about this important program.
