JCP&L CUSTOMERS: This table summarizes 100% renewable electricity as of 9/17/2021 in zipcode 07748.
 Prices are in cents per kilowatt-hours, and should be compared to JCP&L "Price to Compare" explained in the left “Messages” column of your JCP&L bill.
The "Price to Compare" is computed for each customer, based upon actual electrical usage  
JCP&L "Price to Compare" is 9.6520 cents/kwh, "winter" 10/1/2021 to 5/31/2022;
Prices of all vendors are currently high. Lowest cost strategy: select Verde Energy 12 month contract (9.19 cents/kwh after $100 rebate for new customer using 8,000 kwh/year); at the end of the 1 year contract, check this list (refresh your browser to view the current file). In 1 year, look for NJ "Community Solar" if available. The alternative would be the lowest 30 month contract. At that point, again look for available "Community Solar"
The EPA recommends buying only third - party certified and verified green power sources, identified here
Limited experience suggests that a consumer can receive a discount from these published web site rates by phoning for lowest price.
PSEG CUSTOMERS: your PSEG electricity is more than 2cents/kwh higher, and these suppliers are ALSO more than 2cents/kwh higher. Check the supplier for pricing.
