PENNSAUKEN TOWNSHIP RESIDENTIAL ENERGY AGGREGATION PROGRAM
As a customer in the Pennsauken Township Community Aggregation Program, we want to ensure you are aware of price changes for the supply portion of your electricity bill.
Why is there price change?
There are two price changes.
The first change will start in January, when your price will change to reflect a lower New Jersey Sales Use Tax (SUT) that takes effect starting January 1, 2017.
The second change will reflect an increase in regulated transmission rates that affect all residents served by PSE&G that takes effect starting March 1, 2017.
What will be my new price? How long will it last?
- Your price for electricity supply in December is $0.10865 / kWh.
- Your price for electricity supply in January will be between $0.10852 / kWh and $0.10865 / kWh. The actual price will be based on the number of days in your bill cycle that are in January, 2017.
- Your price for electricity supply in February will be $0.10852 / kWh.
- Your price for electricity supply in March will be $0.11161 / kWh. That price will remain the same through the end of your term with Talen Energy in September, 2017.
Am I still saving money?
Yes. Even with the price changes, you are still saving money. As of December 15, 2016, the Tariff PSE&G Price to Compare is $0.11839, and it is expected to be higher when the increase regulated transmission rates is applied to the Price to Compare starting in March, 2017.
I thought this was a fixed price product? Why is it changing?
The structure of the auction allowed for suppliers to pass through changes in costs caused by changes in law or regulatory charges not known at the time of the auction. The sales tax decrease is a change in law, and the increased in regulated transmission rates is a change in regulations.
I don’t like these price changes. What can I do?
You can choose to opt-out of the Pennsauken Community Aggregation Program by calling Talen Energy Customer Care at 888-289-7693. You may also call 877-292-3904 to opt out.
If you choose to opt out, your electricity supply will be returned to PSE&G for default service at the next available meter read date, and you will pay the PSE&G Price to Compare for supply.
If I accept these price changes, do I need to do anything?
There is no need to do anything. The price changes will take effect automatically.
How does this affect my Budget Billing payments?
If you have Budget Billing, the amount of money you pay each month for electricity supply does not change as a result of the price changes. The change in price will be incorporated in the true-up balance which will appear the last bill where Talen Energy is the supplier.
When does the Community Energy Aggregation Program End?
This Pennsauken Township Community Energy Aggregation will still end as scheduled with your September, 2017 meter read.
What if I have additional questions?
If you have additional questions, please call Talen Energy Customer Care at 888-289-7693 or email us at CustomerCare@talenenergy.com.
