Trenton electricity customers have the ability to shop for low electric rates thanks to the restructuring of the New Jersey energy market. Other states, including Illinois and Connecticut, have had great success with electricity choice. New Jersey energy choice has resulted in cheaper electricity prices, a variety of product options, improved customer satisfaction ratings, and an increase in energy jobs.
The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities has turned power shopping for residential customers into an easy process. Customers in Trenton looking for the cheapest electricity rates simply need to compare the competitive electric rates to the basic generation service rates offered through PSE&G. The BGS rates include all of the charges in the supply section of the PSE&G bill, but they do not include the delivery charges. The NJ BPU not only requires PSE&G to post the BGS charges on the electric bill, but they also require all competitive offers to be an apples to apples comparison of the BGS rate.
The apples to apples price comparison requirement eliminates the chance for hidden fees and surprise charges that can sometimes distort an accurate price comparison. Consumers can simply shop for the lowest Trenton electric rates by comparing numbers, if saving the maximum amount is their goal. Alternative electricity companies in Trenton and the rest of New Jersey are not allowed to charge extra fees or switching charges on top of the competitive rate offered.
