Just Energy: Your New Jersey energy supplier
Simplify and save: bundle your natural gas and electric service today.
Understanding the New Jersey Energy Choice Program
Several states across the US deregulated their energy markets in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Deregulated energy laws eliminated the power of a single commodity utility and instead encouraged competition by allowing Third Party Supplier (TPS) to sell natural gas and electricity to consumers. TPS’s purchase energy from utilities, then package and sell it to consumers with a variety of plan types and extra benefits.
New Jersey is a deregulated energy state, but the New Jersey Energy Choice program takes deregulated energy laws one step further by allowing customers to choose both their energy supplier and energy generator. Choose the energy generator or utility that resonates best with you. Once you do, these entities are tasked with getting that power to you:
- Natural gas or electric utility: The two New Jersey utilities that Just Energy serves are Jersey Central Power and Light Company (JCP&L) or Public Service Enterprise Group (PSE&G). These companies both handle energy transmission and delivery, and they’re responsible for maintaining power and gas lines and restoring power after any outages.
- Third Party Supplier (TPS): Just Energy is considered a TPS. We’ll work with you to find the best electricity or natural gas plan or bundled service for you, and we’ll also handle billing and customer service.
Finding the best NJ energy provider and price
New Jersey customers have plenty of choices when searching for a home energy provider. This benefits consumers, but complicates shopping for home or business energy.
Whether your New Jersey home looks out at the rolling hills and lakes of Sussex county or across the Hudson at the Manhattan skyline, you need reliable energy. Besides trying to find the lowest rate, here are a few other questions to ask as you start your search:
- How easy is the switching/enrollment process?
- Will your rate remain the same throughout your contract?
- How long is your contract?
- Do you have the option to choose a different contract length?
- What other extras or options are available?
Just Energy offers Price Protection Plans for electricity and natural gas, green energy options, and an easy enrollment process. We also prioritize customer service by giving our customers multiple points of contact and bill pay options. Spend less time worrying about your energy provider and more time enjoying where you live—make Just Energy your home or business energy provider.
How Just Energy plans benefit customers
Another important consideration in the process? Plan type. At Just Energy, we know every customer’s needs are different so we have multiple plan types for customers to choose from. But we also want the options we provide to benefit consumers, which is why the majority of our plans have fixed rates.
We also believe that rates and plans aren’t all that matters, which is why Just Energy goes above and beyond. Read on to learn more about plan types and other extras you’ll be able to take advantage of as a Just Energy customer.
Fixed rate Plans
Fixed-rate plans allow you to lock-in one low rate for the duration of your contract. Even if market rates for electricity or natural gas rise, your rate won’t. You’ll be able to plan your monthly energy costs and won’t be subject to rate hikes at any point in your contract.
For reference, variable-rate plans have opposite terms—rates can increase or decrease at any point during a contract depending on utility costs, which makes budgeting unpredictable.

The renewable energy certificates we support come from wind farms, and the carbon offsets from carbon pollution reduction projects like landfill gas capture systems.
To date, JustGreen has offset over 10 billion pounds of carbon pollution reductions million metric tons of carbon emissions, which is like planting over 300 million trees.**
