Self Generation Standards Chapter 24 Article III
Full Borough of Lavallette Online Code BookExternal Link

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 IIIExternal Link. 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.

Navigation Bullet Energy Deregulation and Lavallette Electric "Shopping Around for Electric"

Lavallette Residents with Lavallette Electric are not eligible to "shop around" for electric prices.

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.

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.

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.
