Mayor's Message

  1.  David Runfeldt

    Dear Lincoln Park Resident:

    I’m writing to share some exciting news, designed to save you money on your energy bill every month.

    The Borough Council and I are working to bring a state-supported program here called Government Energy Aggregation (GEA). GEA enables municipalities to total the energy use of their residents, and then seek a lower electricity rate on behalf of all residents.  Dozens of other towns across New Jersey have successfully implemented GEA programs over the past two years, saving residents millions of dollars statewide.  

    To help lower your electric bills as much as possible, we are working with four other Morris County towns to pursue GEA together: the boroughs of Wharton, Mendham and Riverdale, and the Township of Long Hill. This group is called the Morris Area Energy Cooperative.  By joining together, each town will have more buying power, so we can attract the lowest possible electric rates for residents.

    Council and I are very excited to be able to provide this service to you! There is no cost to residents, and we will only implement GEA if we can achieve significant savings over current rates from JCP&L or PSE&G. If we cannot obtain shared savings, no changes will occur.  There is no need for you to do anything to take advantage of the savings.  You will automatically be included in this program. If you choose not to be included you can opt out now, or at any time in the future.

    Concord Energy Services, the consulting firm that’s working with the Cooperative, will hold the following town hall meetings to explain the program and answer residents’ questions. Please join us on

    Wednesday, March 11:

    Senior Citizen Meeting - 12:30 pm   @ St. Joseph's Church
    General Open House   5pm-7pm  LP Municipal Complex - Community Meeting Room

    I strongly encourage you to attend so you’re well-equipped to decide whether to participate or opt out of the program. More information is also available at the Borough’s website -- www.lincolnpark.org -- and at www.njaggregation.us/maec.  

    Thank you for your attention, and we look forward to seeing you at the town hall meetings.

    David A. Runfeldt, Mayor
