Somerset, NJ August 5, 2013 – The New Jersey League of Municipalities has published an “Electrical
Energy Policy Primer for New Jersey Municipalities
” to provide guidance to its members when developing an energy policy.  In the section on Energy Efficiency & Conservation, it states on page 11:

The New Jersey Energy TrackingSystem (NJETS) is another program that municipalities should consider.  The NJETS allows municipalities to track their electricity and water consumption online.
The program saves money by making the handling of utility bills easier and by improving the management of facilities. The program is revenue neutral because the cost of the program is taken
out of the savings produced.  The State of New Jersey has already gone to bid for NJETS’ services, so municipalities can sign up for the NJETS without going through a separate bidding process.

“The NJETS is being used to manage energy in all facilities of New Jersey State Departments as well as New Jersey Transit, and a number of municipalities and school districts,”  according to the CEO of EnergySolve Mr. S. Lynn Sutcliffe whose News Jersey based company  powers the system.  Mr. Sutcliffe expressed appreciation to the League for recommending that municipalities consider the NJETS in its Energy Primer.

Not only does the NJ ETS save money and improve management of facilities, it also promotes sustainability according to Sustainable Jersey which awards priority points to municipalities that use the NJETS.  Sustainable Jersey has pointed out that – since EnergySolve LLC is an official ENERGY STAR partner,  they have a cooperative agreement that provides for automatic exporting of all the data they collect directly into ESPM [Energy Star Portfolio Manager].  Since ESPM is free, the combination of using NJ ETS and ESPM provides the dual benefits of benchmarking (through ESPM) and cost savings (through NJETS). 

As the Deputy Mayor of Maplewood, Kathleen M. Leventhal, recently explained:  “Reporting to Sustainable Jersey for 2013 will be a piece of cake.  All the data has been entered each month into the Energy Tracking System from bills sent to EnergySolve by the utilities, reviewed for accuracy,
approved for payment, paid, and registered as paid in Maplewood’s accounting system automatically.  In August of this year they will literally only have to push a button to generate the annual report for Sustainable Jersey.”
