Regrettably, the Piscataway Community Energy Aggregation program will be suspended as of October 2021, due to a significant lack of savings between the supply costs that eligible suppliers are able to provide versus PSE&G Basic Generation Service rates. For those Piscataway residents that are currently participating in Piscataway CEA, your account(s) will be returned to PSE&G service as of your October meter read, reflected on your November PSE&G bill. The letter below provides a brief description of the suspension and your available options. Impacted account holders should receive this letter during the first week of September 2021. Please visit this site in the future for any program status updates.
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.
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 to 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.
