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 Aggregation Cooperative Energy Aggregation Program’s contract term ended in December 2021, at which time all residential accounts enrolled in the program were returned to the state’s Basic Generation Service (BGS) in JCP&L territory. Savings to residents through the program totaled over $2 million between April 2017 and December 2021.
In an effort to provide continued savings to residents, the SWAEC went out to energy auction in September and October 2021, June 2022, and September 2023. Unfortunately, pricing received at the time of the auctions was higher than the BGS rate with JCP&L, so the program could not be continued.
Participating members in the SWAEC include the Fredon Township (Lead Agency for the cooperative), Andover Borough, Alpha Borough, Blairstown Township, Branchville Borough, Green Township, Hardwick Township, Harmony Township, Hope Township, Oxford Township, Town of Phillipsburg, Stanhope Borough, and Stillwater Township.
The SWAEC anticipates soliciting bids again in Spring 2024. Residents can always call the program’s energy consultants at 866-688-5197, option 3, with questions and for program updates.
