New Jersey Energy Consultants and Suppliers Required to Have an In-state Office
Effective immediately, the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities requires businesses holding an Energy Supplier License or an Energy Consultant registration to have a New Jersey office location. Address types considered valid by the Board include commercial locations, home-offices or shared commercial space; neither a P.O. Box or a registered agent address will be accepted by the Board. Businesses must also provide a lease agreement as proof that the office is legally occupied.
It should be noted that during renewals, current license holders must provide an in-state address that differs from their registered agent address.
The in-state office functions as a place to accept service of process and maintain energy records. A representative at the designated office must have knowledge of the company and be able to answer direct questions about the business.
