Government Energy Aggregation Program

Welcome to the City of Hoboken’s Renewable Energy Program web page. In May 2018, the City of Hoboken adopted Ordinance #18-294 authorizing the establishment of the Renewable Energy Program for the purpose providing more clean, green energy at a lower electricity price than what PSE&G is currently offering. This program is a major step toward achieving the City’s goal of reaching net-zero energy by 2030, as established by Hoboken’s Climate Action Plan. In this program, PSE&G will continue to distribute residents’ electricity and will remain their utility, but residents will buy their electricity supply through the Hoboken Renewable Energy Program. The program provides an additional 10% renewable electricity (like solar and wind) as the Standard Offering, and also offers residents the option to choose to have 100% of their electricity derived from renewable sources.

The program for residents first began in March 2022 and continued through November 2023. The City of Hoboken held an auction on August 23, 2023, in an effort to continue providing this important program to residents. A contract with Direct Energy was signed and the new contract term begins with residents’ meter reads in March 2024 and ends with meter reads after November 2024.

Program Options & Pricing

Residents who decide to participate in Hoboken’s Renewable Energy Program have access to an online savings tool which will provide each participating resident with their monthly usage total, comparison of charges through the program versus PSE&G’s Basic Generation Service price, and usage trends. Residents also have the ability to opt-in and opt-out of the program online and can switch between the different renewable energy options available through the program. More information about how to access these online features is provided in the video posted below under “Communications”. A program information packet is also posted under “Communications”.

Residents looking to enroll in the Basic Option or 100% Green Option will need to opt-in to those options by calling the program’s energy consultants 866-688-5197, sending an email to, or click here (be sure to provide the Program Option (Basic or 100% Green) information in “Comments”).

Residents can call 866-688-5197 with questions about the program and for additional information about the City of Hoboken’s Renewable Energy Program.
