Notification from JCP&L of Enrollment with First Energy Solutions under the Township’s Community Energy Aggregation (CEA) Program
In early December the Township accepted bids and awarded a contract to First Energy Solutions, to be the electric power supplier for Township residents under the South Hunterdon Renewable Energy Cooperative (SHREC) Community Energy Aggregation program. All Township residents who do not currently have a third party supplier are eligible to participate in this program. Eligible residents were sent a detailed latter from First Energy Solution in early January, explaining the program, informing residents of the contract price of 8.91 cents per kilowatt-hour (which is about 10% less than the JCP&L tariff price for power supply), and providing instructions on how residents can ‘opt-out’ of the program if they did not wish to participate.
At the conclusion of the 30-day opt-out period in early February, those residents who did not ‘opt-out’ of the program were enrolled by First Energy Solutions. This enrollment, submitted to JCP&L, generated an automated letter from the electric utility, which you may have recently received. The intent of this letter, which the utility sends out in compliance with State rules, is simply to notify you that JCP&L has received the enrollment request from First Energy Solutions, and to offer the opportunity for you to ‘rescind’ this enrollment if you do not wish to be enrolled in the program. Essentially this is simply an additional ‘fail-safe’ to assure that customers are aware of the switch of accounts to the new supplier. If it is your intent to be a participant in the Township’s CEA program, and realize the program’s electric power supply cost savings, there is
nothing that you need to do, and you can simply ignore the JCP&L letter.
