PSEG Energy Choice
By default, PSEG customers get both the delivery and supply of their energy from PSE&G. In 1999, New Jersey passed the Electric Discount and Energy Competition Act giving residential customers the ability to choose their electricity or natural gas provider. When New Jersey residents participate in Energy Choice, they’re able to find the lowest energy supply rate for their homes and take advantage of competing offers from retail electricity providers.
With Energy Choice comes a complicated shopping process for electricity rates that many people have never gone through. There are a large number of providers and types of plans to choose from that can be hard to sort through.
ElectricityRates.com alleviates any confusion PSE&G customers experience by making it simple, secure and free to compare electricity rates and switch providers. In the Marketplace, you’ll only find great rates from leading providers so you don’t have to worry about making the wrong choice.
Solar 4 All Program & Renewable Energy
PSEG’s Solar 4 All program develops 158 megawatts (MW) of solar capacity that has the ability to generate enough energy to power 25,000+ homes in New Jersey. The program is a significant step towards a sustainable future and benefits all New Jersey residents by increasing renewable energy in the electricity grid, as well as creating jobs and economic development.
PSEG Customers can show their support for renewable energy by switching to a 100% renewable energy supplier. When comparing rates in the ElectricityRates.com Marketplace, look for the “100% renewable sources” label on any plan.
PSEG’s residential electric service area covers 2,600 square miles, running down from northeast New Jersey to the western border with Pennsylvania.
