    Alternative Energy Suppliers

    In N.J., if a customer picks, as an example, MX Energy instead of PSEG as its provider, what role, if any, does PSEG have, and if it does still have a role, does it make any money if it is not the customers provider?

    • Hi Clifford _19 ~ Thanks for agreeing with me on 1907. I'm an old age on profile it 30 years younger than I I can remember PSE&G when they ran Trollies and Buses.

      I live in Pa. after my retirement in 1986 from the USPS. I was born in Englewood....but live in Tenefly. Tenefly has no hospital. But was raised in Paterson till 1954...then Hawthorne, Waldwick...and finally Haskell.

      I can remember riding the trollies to Palisades...then down to the water catch the ferry boat to New York. Thanks for your kick back. Hold on to PEG....and stay on that DRIP. PEG is dowwn...but the hot summer will soon be here. Also I hear rumores PP&L and PEG might merge. But it's only a rumore so far. Take care.

    • Buckeye,
      PSEG charges are split between supply and delivery. Though PS may not be the supplier of choice, it still bills for delivery charges for using its distribution system, and makes a small profit on that part.
      PS also still provides emergency service to the customer during outages.
      When PS does not supply the electric it loses out due to still having very high fixed costs for power plants that are not operating at peak efficiency while still being locked into contracts for fuel costs.
