Hamilton's Energy Aggregation Program

Working to Reduce Your Electricity Costs

A Community Energy Aggregation is a program that allows a community to conduct the “bulk purchase” of energy supply (i.e. electricity) on behalf of its residents, at prices lower than the average utility price.  New Jersey regulations allow municipalities to take this approach to procure savings for its residents.

Beginning in 2014, Mayor Kelly Yaede proposed this plan for Hamilton Township to help reduce electricity costs for Hamilton residents.
