    CCNJ ENERGY PURCHASING PROGRAM & ANNUAL MARKET UPDATE

    By early February 2015, memories of the unprecedented spike in electricity and natural gas prices during the winter of 2014 had faded for many customers. Spot market energy prices had returned to normal levels and many experts were predicting that the 2014 winter prices were “a one-time anomaly.” Within a few weeks, that theory was disproven as frigid temperatures invaded much of the U.S. during February and March 2015. The 2014 market price “anomaly” had become a two-year event with the 2015 energy markets experiencing another large jump in prices. Today’s conventional wisdom is that winter price premiums are here to stay.
