Tri-Eagle Energy Aggrigation Co-OP with Howell and Point Pleasant

FEBRUARY 1, 2017

Dear Borough of Farmingdale Residents,

 I am proud to write to you today to share the good news about the Borough of Farmingdale’s renewed participation in the Community Energy Program which is a state-authorized “Community Aggregation Program”. Unfortunately we were dropped form this Co-OP over a year ago because of documentation not being executed, however we were given the opportunity to get back in.

 The program is designed to offer you and your neighbors reduced rates on your electric bill.  We are participating in this co-op program orchestrated by Howell and Point Pleasant Beach, which is benefiting Farmingdale residents. This is the same program that was in place a few years ago, and it is important to point out this is an Opt-Out program. You must request to not be included if you do not want to take advantage of the program. It is not done this way to trick users into the program, it is the way the programs are required to operate per NJ State Law N.J.A.C. 14:4-6.1 et seq.   The bottom line is that when we purchase energy from bulk re-sellers, together as a community, we are able to offer lower, more stable rates to the residents. As a governing body I feel we would be remiss not offering the residents ways to save money.

 The attached documents contain important information explaining the Community Aggregation Program established by Farmingdale to provide lower electric generation rates than you would currently pay with JCP&L. We are pleased to offer this cost saving program for your electric bills! Some of you may recall that Farmingdale participated in the program at the initial on-set back in 2015 and we are pleased to be participating again and offering even lower rates.    Please take a few moments to read through the enclosed material.  An example of savings realized by those that continued in the program were known to be saving approximately 12%, and even though each user is different, there is a real benefit to this program. Please know, its ok if you are not interested, it is something that is being made available to the residents of Farmingdale because of our neighboring Howell. Additionally, we are (as a municipality) soon to be completing the process of switching over our accounts to a municipal version of this product for the same reasons you may consider doing so: to save money. Shortly thereafter, we will be able to offer a similar product to benefit our business owners.

 Your participation does not affect your neighbors opportunity to take part in the program. The link below goes to the NJ Agrigation FAQ's page which you may find helpful in making your decision. http://www.njaggregation.us/frequently-asked-questions-v2.html
If you have no interest, its OK, just send back the postcard requesting to Opt Out. You can also call the number, 877-292-3904 which is provided in the letter, or go to the website www.njaggregation.us also provided in the letter, and as a live link here, to register your Opt Out decision. No response from you means you will be automatically opted in.

Thanks

Mayor & Council, The Borough of Farmingdale
