Electric Companies In NJ – 5 Suggestions In Choosing The Best Performer

By Ed Vetter

If you are considering of choosing the best service provider in New Jersey, and had been doing this like a struggle, welcome to the article meant for you. I personally had two weeks of rigorously looking for the one that will answer my needs; I have finally been successful in landing into one. (As we have different situations, let me not tell you my choice.)

1. Most Electric companies in NJ provide almost the same services-well, sort of. Electric companies may basically offer the same services, although they present them differently. One company, FirstEnergy, gives their customers a great number of bundles of environmentally friendly energy that includes solar, wind, and biogas. On the other hand, PSE&G, offers the same thing although on a different setup. Signing up for their services separately is needed, and this can add a premium cost over something that should have been priced low.

2. In NJ, or almost everywhere in the place, the pricing of utilities is rather expensive. Although, at most instance, we are given several options on how we can save. The outstanding fact remains that energy is 19 cents each kilowatt in NJ, this is against the 11 cents on average throughout the other parts of the country. This alone should tell us that we should be careful on our usage, or our money, especially in thinking about the services.

Presently, PSE&G is working hand in hand with the NJ government in awarding incentives to consumers who consume less energy. While smaller companies, like Green Mountain Energy Company, is not capable to offer these incentives. There are many companies at the moment that offer premium rates in replace to creative energy reduction solutions.

3. If you are the environmentalist type, then go for a smaller company. Due to tax rebates, SRAC sales to the state, and the others, NJ has now many options when it comes to earth-friendly renewable energy. In contrast, larger energy providers like PSE&G and FirstEnergy cannot do the same since they nearly monopolized the market. If your opt to go green, then consider Green Mountain (renewable), PALMco Energy (for natural gas, one of the truly 0 emission energy sources), or GDF SUEZ for retail clean energy.

4. I usually think that electricity rates are going to go up, and if you are in the same boat, then choose a plan that is fixed-rate. This energy plan will guarantee a certain energy price over 1-, 5-, or even some 10-year period. This will definitely gives you savings on your money, especially when it comes to the changeable energy price sector. Paranoid or not, especially after going through the ENRON price gauging (reliving the “Operation Death Star”) in California during the late 1990′s, this is certainly a key factor in deciding for my choice.

5. If you have a commercially based thing, then go with an electric utility service that specializes in one. You don’t have to go with one of the Big 2 if you are purchasing energy for the business you have, especially more so if the nature of your business is a power-intensive operation one, like an IT data center. Why don’t you check Hess Corp-they actually supply to some major industrial customers, and might actually be able to offer bulk discounts (this is vs bulk penalties, like how some providers will hit you with. Have I told you that energy is a strange industry in New Jersey?)

In the long run, considering these 5 factors may help you decide wisely for the best electric companies in NJ. And I am happy with choice I made, I hope that you will end up happy with yours also.
