New Jersey residents can choose who supplies their electricity.

In New Jersey, the energy market is deregulated. Gone are the old days of monopolies, high prices, and low-quality service. The current day means more options for where you get your energy, how much you pay for it and the options that come with it.

Why do New Jersey residents choose AEP Energy?

AEP Energy is an electricity provider that serves thousands of customers in New Jersey. Read what some of our customers have to say about their experience.

In this day of rising cost, I was pleasantly surprised to find my AEP Energy rates would be dropping on my new agreement. The Customer Service Rep who handled my reenrollment was very clear in explaining the new rates and terms available and the process was handled in a very short time on the phone. All my documentation arrived in a timely manner as promised. Very happy with the service.

FAQs

Answering your questions

Enrollment

  • No. Most Public Utilities Commissions have only allowed investor owned utilities to participate in electric choice. Municipal electric cooperatives do not participate in electric choice.

  • There is no equipment to install or any changes in wiring or hardware. You also won’t experience any interruptions as a result of enrolling with AEP Energy and there will be no changes in your electricity delivery.

  • Eligibility rules for assistance programs can vary by state and/or utility. Please contact your local utility for more information.

  • Unfortunately, if you owe money to the local utility, you are not eligible to enroll with AEP Energy until your balance has been paid.

  • No, AEP Energy will take care of notifying the local utility. Enrolling with AEP Energy does not eliminate or cancel your current local utility service. You will remain a customer of your current local utility as they will continue to read your meter, send you one bill that contains all of your charges and provide maintenance and emergency services.

  • In most cases, your service will begin on the next available meter-read date after your local utility accepts your enrollment. This typically takes up to 45-75 days after we receive your enrollment form. In New Jersey, depending upon when you enroll, it can take one or two bill cycles before the switch occurs. However, AEP Energy charges may not appear on your bill for up to three bill cycles.

  • Switching fees are a cost imposed by your local utility (with the exception of Pennsylvania) that you may incur as a result of changing suppliers. However, AEP Energy will cover those charges. Please note – switching fees should not be confused with early termination fees. Many price plans do not include an early termination fee, however, please carefully review the terms and conditions of your contract.

  • Many of our price plans do not have an early termination fee if you cancel prior to the end of your agreement. However, please carefully review the terms and conditions of your contract.
