Feel like your bill is too high?
Last month the meter readings were about 3 weeks of usage and this moth they were about 5 weeks of usage on your bill due to holidays and staffing in January and a meter project that was being completed in February. If you look at the last 3 months of bills you will see that the bills were higher, then went lower and now higher this month again. The last 2 months average out to a normal bill.

Self Generation - Solar Panels
*Import information for any customer interested in Self Generation*
Please read the Borough Ordinance concerning generating energy.
Self Generation Standards Chapter 24 Article III
Full Borough of Lavallette Online Code Book
Customers who are interested in generating their own electricity
with renewable energy sources can interconnect with the electric
grid and receive bill credits for excess generation. As a
municipally owned electric utility there are some differences with
interconnecting to the boroughs electric grid.
Installers who have not done an install in Lavallette or homeowners interested in solar should read read the Borough Code Book on self generation to begin with. Please visit Self Generation Standards Chapter 24 Article III. The Self Generation Standards explains the process for interconnecting, engineering review and metering requirements. The one change to the process that is not corrected in the ordinance is: The Borough of Lavallette Electric Department provides the dual reading meter and the cost is billed to the homeowner.
We require an escrow fee of $1500 to cover costs associated with engineering review. After submitting the interconnect application and escrow fee the application packet is sent to the engineers office for review.
After you have read through the code regarding self generation, if you have any additional questions, please contact this office.
The Interconnection Application is available to download or also available at the Lavallette Municipal Building. Before the engineer review process can begin the borough must be in possession of the $1500 escrow fee.
Space Heater Safety
Space heaters can provide extra comfort during the winter season. Following are some basic tips* that will help ensure their safe use.
Portable heaters and burning candles that are left unattended, especially around children and pets, can create a fire hazard. In addition, gasoline- or diesel-powered generators and appliances can produce deadly levels of carbon monoxide and should never be operated inside the home or garage.

When it is anticipated that one of those peak days is occurring, you will receive a voice message through the Borough’s automated notification system. We asked that when you do receive this message you do what you can to reduce your energy use during that period; such as turning off or unplugging all unused fixtures, electronics or appliances or setting the temperature of your air conditioning unit to a highest comfort level possible. By doing so, you will help the utility reduce our energy costs and give us the ability to pass those savings on to you, our customers. More Information.

Lavallette Residents with JCP&L Electric are eligible to "shop around" for electric prices.
Under New Jersey’s energy deregulation law, the supply portion of your electric or natural gas bill is separated from the delivery portion. With the supply portion open to competition, customers can shop around for the best price on their energy supplies. Their electric and natural gas distribution utilities will still deliver those supplies through their wires and pipes – and respond to emergencies, should they arise – regardless of where those supplies are purchased.

If you're in the market to buy new energy using products, look for products with the ENERGY STAR® label! The ENERGY STAR label is the national symbol for energy efficiency and is a voluntary partnership among the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, product manufacturers, local utilities and retailers.
The ENERGY STAR label helps to identify products that are energy-efficient and, therefore, cost less to operate. These products include household appliances, compact fluorescent light bulbs, lighting fixtures, home electronics, office equipment, heating and cooling products, and windows.
ENERGY STAR labeled products exceed federal energy efficiency standards, typically by 13 - 20 percent. Furthermore, many ENERGY STAR labeled products such as TV's, computers and other equipment do not cost more than standard efficiency models. Some ENERGY STAR labeled products, such as heating and cooling equipment, may cost a little more but energy bill savings make up for the slightly higher upfront price, often saving 15 - 40 percent annually over standard efficiency products.
ENERGY STAR labeled products also help to protect the environment by using less energy than conventional products that cost more to operate. To find the store closest to you carrying ENERGY STAR labeled products, use the store locator or product finder feature on the ENERGY STAR website at www.energystar.gov.
Decorative Light Strings
If all decorative light strings sold in America this year were ENERGY STAR qualified, we would save over 2 billion kWh per year and reduce greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to nearly 300,000 cars!
ENERGY STAR qualified decorative light strings — many which feature LED technology — consume 75% less energy than conventional incandescent lights strands.
ENERGY STAR Qualified Decorative Light Strings:
- Can last up to 10 times longer than traditional incandescent strands.
- Are cool to the touch, reducing the risk of fire.
- Do not have moving parts, filaments or glass, so they are much more durable and shock-resistant than other light strings.
- Are available in a variety of colors, shapes and lengths.
- Are independently tested to meet strict lifetime and electrical requirements.
- Products labeled for outdoor use are subjected to weathering tests.
- Some models deliver features such as dimming or color shifting.

General Alternative Energy Information
Photovoltaic technology makes use of the abundant energy in the sun, and it has little impact on our environment. Photovoltaic can be used in a wide range of products, from small consumer items to large commercial solar electric systems..
Solar-electricity, or photovoltaic (PV) converts sunlight directly into electricity. You may be more familiar with PV cells as solar cells that power watches and calculators. But PV can do much more. It can provide electricity for residential and commercial buildings, including power for lights and air conditioning. PV can also be a convenient source of power for pumping water, electrifying fences, or aerating ponds in remote applications.Solar-electricity, or photovoltaic (PV) converts sunlight directly into electricity.

Wind is a form of solar energy. Winds are caused by the uneven heating of the atmosphere by the sun, the irregularities of the earth's surface, and rotation of the earth. Wind flow patterns are modified by the earth's terrain, bodies of water, and vegetation. Humans use this wind flow, or motion energy, for many purposes: sailing, flying a kite, and even generating electricity..
The terms wind energy or wind power describe the process by which the wind is used to generate mechanical power or electricity. Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy in the wind into mechanical power. This mechanical power can be used for specific tasks (such as grinding grain or pumping water) or a generator can convert this mechanical power into electricity.

Exploring Ways to Use Ocean Energy
Oceans cover more than 70% of the Earth's surface. As the world's largest solar collectors, oceans generate thermal energy from the sun. They also produce mechanical energy from the tides and waves. Even though the sun affects all ocean activity, the gravitational pull of the moon primarily drives the tides, and the wind powers the ocean waves.
