NJ RENEWABLE ELECTRIC PRICES (5/24/2018)

JCP&L CUSTOMERS: This table summarizes 100% renewable electricity available 5/24/2018, in NJ, to JCP&L residential customers in zipcode 07748 and church/business in zipcode 07733.

Customers of other electric companies (Atlantic Electric, PSE&G, Rockland) should determine their own pricing and savngs. 
 
Prices are in cents per kilowatt-hours, and should be compared to JCP&L "Basic Generation Service" (previously “Price to Compare”):10.163 cents per kwh for residences (as of 5/15/2018)   "Basic Generation Service" (previously called "Price to Compare") is explained in the left “Messages” column of the JCP&L bill.  The lowest cost supplier in the following list will save an avg residential customer 1.12 cents/kwh (11% ), save a church about 1 cent/kwh (11%), and release no greenhouse gases, in order to slow global warming. NOTE: JCP&L has lower rates during June-Sept; and higher rates remainder of year. PSE&G appears to have roughly stead rates throughout year.

The EPA recommends buying only third - party certified and verified green power sources, identified here, and indicated by *(e-certified), in list, below. Many of the 3rd party lowest cost suppliers were e-certified as of early 2017, and subsequently dropped e-certification
