NJ Electricity Prices and Savings

Seven years after New Jersey officially deregulated their electricity market, residences of the state are finally seeing competitive electric rates that can save them real dollars off of their monthly electric bill.

If you are a customer of PSE&G, JCP&L, Rockland Electric, or Atlantic City Electric, savings can be found by shopping the competitive electricity market for lower prices.  Alternative electric suppliers had been slow to enter the New Jersey market for a variety of reasons.  However, a significant drop in wholesale electric prices combined with high utility default rates, have given electricity companies a great reason to get licensed by the state and market their services and rates to New Jersey customers.

Residential customers can choose between a variable electric rate that can fluctuate month to month but gives the customer the option to leave the service at any time, or a fixed electric rate that locks in your rate for a specific period of time, usually anywhere from 4-24 months.

Here are the residential electricity rates available in New Jersey at this time:
PSEG Rates



JCPL Rates



Atlantic City Electric Rates



Some of the companies are running introductory offers with cashback bonuses.

Low fixed rate offers with a Visa Prepaid card up to $75 can be found here

In most cases, including the offers above, even after you switch electric suppliers you will still get your monthly electric bill from your utility company.  The utility companies (PSEG, JCPL, Rockland, Atlantic City Electric) are still regulated lines and wires company and are responsible for billing residential electric customers.  They only provide a default electric rate to residential customers because they are required to do so by the state under the terms of the New Jersey Competition and Electric Choice Bill.
