• How to Choose

  • New Jersey Energy Choice

  • Our New Jersey customers are able to shop among licensed competitive electric providers. Whether or not you choose to purchase electricity from another provider, we will continue to deliver electricity to all customers through our network of electric power lines. Regardless of where electric supply is purchased, we will continue to maintain these power lines and restore service in the event of any disruption, such as weather related events, and respond to emergency and routine service calls.

    If you do not choose a different provider, we buy electricity for you and charge you according to rates approved by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities. This is called the Basic Generation Supply (“BGS”) program, and rates appear under the “Supply Charges” portion of your bill.

    The “Supply Charges” section in your electricity bill is broken down to indicate charges for:

    • Supply, which is the actual production of electricity at power plants or re-selling of electricity and transporting that electricity to you through transmission lines
    • Delivery, which is the delivery of electricity through our local distribution lines to your home or business
    • Charges for Supply are itemized to show the component rates and dollar amounts. The dollar amounts are totaled and listed as “Total Electric Supply Charges”.

    If you choose a provider other than Atlantic Electric, you will pay that provider’s price for electric supply instead of our electric supply price.
