Notice Concerning Your Electric Supply
Last week you should have received a letter from Jersey Central Power and Light (JCP&L) about the ending of a contract with IDT Energy. That letter is an informational notice, and you do not need to take any action.
This past year, Mendham Township took advantage of a state law that allows us to establish a Community Energy Aggregation Program. This program permits the aggregation of all residential customers within participating municipalities for the purpose of competitively purchasing electricity at rates lower than are currently available from our electric utility, JCP&L. Mendham Township combined the electricity consumption of all residential customers in conjunction with four other towns and received competitive bids from the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities licensed suppliers to provide this electricity supply service and secure better rates for our residents. The supplier that won the bid for the Hunterdon Area Energy Cooperative (HAEC), which Mendham Township is a part of, was IDT energy.
Over the last year, IDT has been supplying your power, and we are pleased that this program will be returning at a new rate of $0.0867/kWh for a term of 9 months effective March 2021. Unfortunately, the HAEC could not get all the contracts to align, so for the months of January and February, JCP&L will be providing your power and starting again in March 2021, IDT will be supplying your energy again. You do not need to take any action and your electric service will continue without interruption (unless you want to opt-out of the program).
IDT energy is starting a new program that offers residents the opportunity to select a 100% renewable energy option. If you have questions about this information, please call the program’s Customer Care Team at 1-866-688-5197 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Updated program information is provided on the HAEC’s web page at www.njaggregation.us/HAEC.
You will receive a more extensive mailing in January 2021 with complete details about the HAEC’s new contract and the new program, including frequently asked questions, dates and times for outreach presentations, and methods you can use to opt-out of the program should you not wish to participate.
Mayor, Mendham Township
