The Piscataway CEA, also known as government energy aggregation (GEA), is a program available to Residential PSE&G account holders beginning in June 2020, and going through October 2021. UPDATE: Due to COVID-19-related issues, the Piscataway CEA program launch was delayed to June 2020. Additional information will be posted as it becomes available. We thank you for your patience in these unique and trying times.
This program was not created by the Mayor and Township Council but instead by a ballot initiative circulated by Food & Water Watch and passed by Piscataway voters in November 2019. The measure requires at least 30 percent of the electricity supply for the Township in 2020 come from renewable sources. The required percentage of renewable energy will increase over time with the ultimate goal of 100 percent by 2035.
Program rates are as follows. The program is only available for Residential accounts. Commercial accounts are excluded.
Below is the opt-out letter envelope and letter, Frequently Asked Questions and opt-out reply card that all eligible Piscataway residential account holders will receive in the mail in the coming days. This official mail is time-sensitive (opt-out deadline is April 16, 2020) and should not be considered junk mail. Program details are explained as well as how to opt out of the program without penalty.
