NEWARK, N.J. & BALTIMORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Constellation Energy (NYSE: CEG), a leading national competitive electricity supplier, today announced a new offer to New Jersey residents to reduce their home electricity rates up to 15 percent compared to current rates.

“We’ve been helping New Jersey businesses navigate competitive energy markets for more than a decade and have looked for new opportunities the past 18 months to extend similar savings opportunities to New Jersey residential customers,” said Kenny Matula, Constellation’s senior vice president for residential markets. “We are pleased to leverage the recent drop in energy prices and our national energy expertise to offer New Jersey residents the opportunity to reduce electricity rates up to 15 percent compared to current rates.”

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU), the state agency that regulates energy companies doing business in New Jersey, licenses energy suppliers such as Constellation Energy allowing them to compete with the state’s utilities. In the residential sector, the key change experienced by consumers who buy electricity through Constellation Energy is in the kWh rate for electric generation service listed on their monthly utility bill.
JCP&L’s, PSEG’s and ACE’s rates are subject to change and therefore we cannot guarantee savings over the full term of our price plans. Our price does not include any taxes, utility distribution charges or other utility fees, charges or credits. Savings are calculated against each utilities’ Price to Compare (PTC) for rate class RS (Residential Service) in effect Oct. 1, 2011 — May 31, 2012. JCP&L’s and PSEG’s PTC excludes New Jersey’s 7 percent sales and use tax as well as BGS reconciliation charges, which may be a charge or a credit and is subject to change. ACE’s PTC includes the transmission, transmission enhancement charges and the current BGS reconciliation adjustment, but does not include New Jersey’s 7 percent sales and use tax. Your savings may be lower if you are not on rate class RS (Residential Service). The utilities’ residential rates after May 31, 2012 have not yet been set. Savings estimates are rounded.
