As a resident of New Jersey, you are used to choices. To start, you have a wide selection of regions within your state that you can choose to live in—from Northeastern NJ, to the Gateway region, the Skylands, and Delaware Valley. Whether you celebrate at the Jersey Shore Music Festival each summer or enjoy catching a game at the MetLife Stadium on the weekends, you live in a state that has plenty to offer. These choices don’t end there—you have a vast selection of geography, educational institutes, and even reality television shows.
So why should your choices within New Jersey end when it comes to your business or organization?
Thanks to electricity deregulation in New Jersey, business owners can now decide where they buy their electric service. By transitioning to a commercial electricity supplier (like UGI EnergyLink), businesses in the Garden State can purchase their energy from a supplier other than the local distribution company in the area. Business owners in NJ—whether they are based in Newark, Jersey City, Patterson, and Elizabeth—can and should shop around for the best price on their electric service. Given the challenging economic circumstances in the state and throughout much of the country, businesses are best served to find ways to cut expenses where they can.
Current Commercial Electricity Rate in New Jersey
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reports that the average commercial electricity rate in New Jersey as of April 2013 was 12.20 cents per kWh (kilowatts per hour), far exceeding the national average of 9.96 cents per kWh. A typical small business in New Jersey may consume about 5,000 kWh per month, which would bring its monthly energy bill to about $610. For this business, saving just a few pennies on the amount paid per KWh can make a major impact on the company’s bottom line. What if the business could pay about two cents less per kWh? Its monthly energy bill would drop $100 to $537—resulting in annual savings of about $1,200.
While exact numbers will vary, this should give you a general idea of the savings opportunities so easily available to you. No matter your business or organization – whether you own a museum or corporate office in Camden, a non-profit in Trenton, or a manufacturing plant throughout the state – you may be able to benefit from deregulated commercial electricity services in New Jersey with UGI EnergyLink.
