Deregulation in New Jersey

Since the 1990s, residents of New Jersey no longer have to be tied to the power company's rates for electricity. This is significant because you can now shop for better electricity rates, and potentially save hundreds of dollars a year on energy bills. Some states still regulate energy prices, meaning that customers have no choice over what rates they pay, or who they pay. In New Jersey, however, you have an option to choose your energy provider and reduce your energy bills.

History of Deregulation

Deregulation means that New Jersey electric customers can choose from different electricity suppliers. The delivery of the energy (meaning, how the power gets to the house of the customer) is still under the regulation of the state. New Jersey has deregulated electric and gas since 1990 in order to provide residents/customers with retail access to electric suppliers so they can lower their electric bills. In layman's terms, this means that although the electricity is getting to the customer in the same way (via the state's utility company), the company supplying that electricity can vary, which is how different rates come about.

Who Can Buy Deregulated Energy Services?

Any resident of New Jersey is eligible to purchase deregulated energy from alternative supplier. There are no prerequisites to be eligible. There are no additional fees incurred to make the switch, no new equipment that needs to be installed, nor is there an interruption in service. It is simply a way to get the same service for less. Currently, only 20% of the state's electric customers switched to alternative supplier. An even lower 10% of natural gas customers have changed their provider. The savings to switch are significant at about 20% - so why isn't everyone switching? Not everyone knows about deregulation, and even fewer people know whether or not it's available in their area. We want to change that. To find out if you're eligible to choose your own energy rate, type your zip code into our plan finder.

Just Moved to New Jersey?

When moving to a new city, there are several things that need to be done. You have to change your address, update licenses plates, update drivers licenses, and much more. However, be sure to add the check for the electricity prices to your list! Most people simply assume that energy is regulated and has a fixed price per wattage, as has normally been the case in the last few decades. However since New Jersey has deregulated energy prices, customers can shop around for cheaper electricity prices. Switching energy providers when you move will save you hundreds of dollars for the year.

What Plans Are Available in New Jersey With Powersetter?

With Powersetter, there is an option of a fixed-rate plan, a green/renewable plan, or a mix of both a fixed-rate green plan. The bill from the utility company will be the same, and it will still be in charge of any outages or emergencies, as they are still the ones delivering electricity. The only difference will be the new supplier.

Fixed Rate

Fixed rate plans mean you pay the same for your power no matter how much you use. It also protects consumers from sharp rises in energy costs. To allow for easy budgeting each month, sign up for a fixed rate plan.


Green (or renewable) energy has a lesser impact on the environment. It aims not to use up the world's fossil fuel stocks, and instead rely on renewable sources. Opting to use this type of energy not only benefits the environment, but could also be a sound financial decision. Start saving while helping the environment NOW!
