The Montgomery Community Energy Aggregation (MCEA) Program launched by the Township in 2013 has provided electricity cost savings for Montgomery households of over 10%, with average savings exceeding $260!
The initial MCEA program contract with
Solutions began in December 2013 and will be expiring in December 2015. MCEA participants are receiving letters from PSE&G this month (November) notifying you that ConEdison is returning you to PSE&G power supply effective with your December 2015 meter read.
There is nothing further that you need to do at this time.
The Township is currently drafting an ordinance to renew the MCEA program. If this ordinance is passed, the Township anticipates going back out to bid for a MCEA Round II program that, if successful (eg. results in a low bidder offering residents a significant electrical energy cost savings), would result in a new contract to start in Spring 2016. Once the Township conducts a bid and receives favorable prices for the MCEA Round II program, you will receive further information and instructions concerning a new contract.
The letter from PSE&G being sent to residents this month provides a reminder to residents that, while you are being returned to PSE&G power supply, you maintain the right to choose another third party supplier. While all residential electric customers are always free to select a supplier of their choosing, the Township wishes to advise you that any solicitations you are receiving at this time are
not associated with the Township's MCEA program. Any communication from a Township-selected supplier will come with the Township seal. Please read any third party supplier solicitation very carefully, as such independent offers may not have the same protections and terms and conditions as provided by the MCEA program. Also, please be aware that
if you sign-up with a third party supplier outside of the MCEA program, this may impact your ability to participate in the MCEA-Round II program in Spring 2016.
More information will be posted on the Township website once the Township Committee votes to renew of the MCEA program. If the Township decides to move forward with a MCEA Round II program bid which results in a new contract, residents will be receiving a letter with the Township seal in early 2016 providing details of the new contract.
Please pass this information along to your neighbors and friends in town and encourage them to sign-up for the Township's free ebulletin service as a means to receive further information. They can go to
and add their email address in the sign-up box on the right or text INMONTGOMERYNJ to 22828. Thank you!
