NJFC Energy Aggregation Saves Participating Members Nearly $20 Million in Energy Costs

The New Jersey Food Council is pleased to announce its Energy Aggregation Program has saved participating members approximately $9.6 million over the past year and expects to save an additional $7.8 million over the next year on energy costs.  The NJFC Energy Aggregation Program began in 2009 as way for members to leverage their energy needs and acquire competitive pricing.  Currently there are over 350 account holders participating in the program.

NJFC President Linda Doherty stated, “This program has been a tremendous benefit to our members who have seen electricity supply costs reduced by 35-40 percent since the program’s inception.”  The Aggregation commands favorable pricing from utilities due to its uniform load shape, composition of the Aggregation Members and the size of the Aggregation, one of the largest in the State.  Ms. Doherty stated, “With cost savings of nearly $20 million since 2009, it is easy to see how this program adds value to our membership and I could not be more pleased to learn our Aggregation will save another $7.8 million for participating members next year.”
