JCP&L CUSTOMERS: This table summarizes 100% renewable electricity available 3/18/2018 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. 
 PSE&G CUSTOMERS:  Example for PSE&G residential customer in zipcode 08824 with "Basic Generation Service" 12.21 cents/kwh: On 3/18/2018, 3rd party suppliers displayed these prices on their websites (24 month contract for 100% renewable) : Great Eastern Energy
11.71 cents/kwh; YEP 13.59;

Prices are in cents per kilowatt-hours, and should be compared to JCP&L "Basic Generation Service" (previously “Price to Compare”): 9.692 cents per kwh for residences (as of 1/18/2018) and 9.04 cents per kwh (as of 12/17/2017) for church.  "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 a residential customer 0.69 cents/kwh (7%), save a church about 0.89 cents/kwh (11%), and release no greenhouse gases, in order to slow global warming.

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
