New Jersey Launches CleanPower Choice Program

October 02, 2005

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities announced the start of a new program through which the state's retail electric customers can purchase renewable energy without switching electricity suppliers. Under the CleanPower Choice program, residential and business customers can enroll by checking a box on their utility bills and selecting from among renewable energy products offered by four providers: Community Energy, Green Mountain Energy Company, Jersey-Atlantic Wind, and Sterling Planet.

The program began October 1 in the PSE&G and JCP&L service territories and will expand to Atlantic City Electric and Orange & Rockland Utilities in April 2006. For more information, see the BPU October 1 press release.
