Competition Law Summary

New Jersey’s electric competition law provides that all consumers may choose their electric generation supplier. Consumers who do not choose a third-party supplier will continue to have their electric generation supplied by their local distribution company - such as Jersey Central Power & Light Company (JCP&L).
