Consumers and small businesses in New Jersey pay some of the highest electric bills in the country. But that situation is starting to change: A growing number of power suppliers are undercutting the prices charged by the utilities. Customers are free to shop around and pay less for the electricity they use to keep the lights on and get things done.

But how can customers and small businesses be sure they're making the best choices when it comes to signing on with an alternative power supplier? What can policymakers do to make it a level playing field, ensuring third-party power suppliers can offer cheaper deals to ratepayers than those offered by the incumbent utilities? And what can New Jersey do to make it easier to shop for electricity? These and other essential questions will be explored in the NJ Spotlight Roundtable Series: Cutting Consumer Electric Bills Down to Size.
