Government Energy Aggregation Program
Welcome to the Residential Energy Aggregation webpage 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.
The Sussex Warren Area Energy Cooperative (SWAEC) Energy Aggregation Program’s current contract term will be ending with meter reads on or after December 31, 2021. Residential customers in the participating municipalities of 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 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 2019.
In an effort to provide continued savings to residents participating in the energy aggregation program, the SWAEC 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 December 31, 2021. Therefore, participating residents will be reenrolled with the BGS through JCP&L unless they select an alternative supplier.
Residents currently participating in the SWAEC energy aggregation program will receive a letter from their municipality or the SWAEC notifying them of their return to the Basic Generation Service and a switchover confirmation letter from JCP&L. Residents participating in the SWAEC energy aggregation program have collectively saved over $2 Million since the cooperative was established in March 2017.
The SWAEC 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.
