Who is Automatically Included
Eligible residents will be automatically included in the HCEA program and sent a notice in the mail (to be received by January 4, 2017). This notice, known as the Opt-Out Notice, provides all the details of the program as well as the various ways to opt-out of the program, including the awarded TPS’s (South Jersey Energy Company) toll free telephone number, email address, and a postage-paid opt-out card.
Customers will have 30 days to review the Opt-Out Notice and decide whether they wish to opt-out of the program. After that 30 day opt-out period, those residents who do not opt-out of the program will be enrolled by the winning supplier.
Even after an electric account is enrolled, residents are free to opt-out of the program at any time during the contract! Participation in the HCEA Program is 100% optional! There are no any fees or penalties if you decide to opt-out.
Customers that already have their own, independent TPS contracts, or that have a solar power system installed on their property are not part of the included eligibility pool; however, such residents are given the option to join the HCEA program.
