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.
On June 16, 2020, the HAEC sought competitive bids from licensed New Jersey suppliers to renew the program in 2021, and in order to award a contract, the rate per kWh had to be lower than JCP&L’s price to compare at the time of the auction. We are pleased to announce that the program will be continuing at a new rate of $0.0867 for a term of 9 months, effective March 2021 through November 2021, and the new program provides residents with a 100% renewable energy option at a rate of $0.0878/kWh. The program is available to residents in the participating municipalities of the Alexandria Township (Hunterdon County), the Township of Bethlehem (Hunterdon County), the Borough of Califon (Hunterdon County), Chester Township (Morris County), the Town of Clinton (Hunterdon County), Delaware Township (Hunterdon County), the Borough of Frenchtown (Hunterdon County), the Borough of High Bridge (Hunterdon County), Kingwood Township (Hunterdon County), the City of Lambertville (Hunterdon County), Mendham Township (Morris County), the Borough of Peapack and Gladstone (Somerset County), and Washington Township (Morris County).
Eligible residents (those who aren't under individual contract with a third-party supplier or have net meters for solar panels) were mailed a more extensive information packet in January 2021 with complete details about the new program, including the 100% renewable option, frequently asked questions, and methods you can use to opt-out of the program should you not wish to participate. Sample information packets are posted below under "Program Documents". The information packets also included dates and times for outreach presentations via Zoom webinar; unfortunately, we were unable to schedule in person presentations about the program due to emergency orders in place in response to COVID-19. Webinar dates are also noted below under "Important Dates", and a video presentation is posted under the "Program Documents".
Please come out and join us at an upcoming informational session to learn more about this important program.
