Public Service Electric and Gas Co. (PSE&G) declared effective December 1, annual electric bills are dropping by about 3.9 percent as another charge related to energy restructuring expires. The reduction was recently approved by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities.

The December 1 change is in addition to reductions totaling about 2.4 percent that took effect earlier in 2015.  As a result of these reductions, the annual bill for a typical residential electric customer who uses 7,200 kilowatt-hours annually and receives electric supply from PSE&G has dropped by about $85, or about 6.3 percent since Jan. 1, 2015.

The charges that expired in 2015 are recovered costs incurred by PSE&G for the securitization of stranded costs and associated taxes it paid related to when the states electric industry was deregulated. Additional deregulation-related charges are predictable to expire in 2016.
