The Manchester Township administration has come to terms on a two-year aggregation contract with 'Tri-Eagle Energy', a Texas based company who predicts 15-percent savings starting mid-way through 2017.

The Township may renegotiate for better rates over the course of the deal if they seem fit.

JCP&L will still be providing residents with services but the electricity bills will now be offered by Tri-Eagle.

Ratepayers in Manchester will receive additional details and opt-out instructions coming their way in about a month.

“I am excited for all Manchester residents to start saving on their costs for electricity," said Mayor Kenneth Palmer. "In this economy, every penny counts, especially for our residents on a fixed income.”

The opt-out system means that if residents do not wish to be automatically enrolled in the program, they can send a postcard they'll receive in the mail back to the Township or call a designated number to be provided in a matter of 30 days after it takes effect.

“The Energy Aggregation contract will definitely save our residents money each month on their electric bills,” said Council President Sam Fusaro. “In the spirit of complete transparency, the Township will be sending out information on the program soon, and will also be scheduling meetings to answer any questions our residents have about the program.”
