Tradition Helps Middletown Township Celebrate Earth Day With 100% Renewable Energy

Departure from aggregation group made the green purchase and savings possible for the Township

Stamford, Connecticut, April 22, 2020 – Tradition Energy announces that it has advised Middletown Township, New Jersey, on a renewable electricity purchase that will offset 100% of their conventional energy usage and save thousands of dollars versus their previous contract.

“This new electrical energy arrangement will save the Township 10%  versus our previous contract and at the same time increase our percentage of purchased renewables for electricity from 25% to 100%,” said Mayor Tony Perry. “Not only are we excited to secure these savings for taxpayers, but we’re also able to achieve a major environmental win for our Township.”

Historically, Middletown Township purchased its energy through a local aggregation group. At the time, low rates were achieved by aggregating multiple municipality energy loads, but there was less flexibility. “Tradition offered Middletown a better alternative by giving us the ability to react quickly to market opportunities or pursue unique goals such as purchasing renewable energy and constructing on-site solar generation on our land,” commented Township Administrator Tony Mercantante.

“Middletown Township has achieved what more and more municipalities are learning – you can have it all – both meet your renewable energy goals and reduce your costs,” said Alan Kurzer, CEO, Tradition Energy. “Our hats are off to the hard work everyone did to make this procurement victory possible for the Township.”
