Billing and Pricing Information (BGSS Monthly Pricing)

Annually, NJNG reviews all General Service Small (GSS) commercial customers' accounts to determine if their usage is greater than 5,000 therms annually.  If the customer’s usage is greater than 5,000 therms annually, the account is assigned to the General Service Large (GSL) service rate classification.   In conjunction with this annual review, all customers who are under the GSL service classification, or are being moved to that classification, have their Highest Monthly Average Daily (HMAD) level calculated and/or reviewed. The HMAD represents the highest usage a customer could have in one day, and it is determined by using the highest usage between two actual meter reads. 

GSL commercial customers who use more than 5,000 therms annually are billed under the monthly Basic Gas Supply Service (BGSS) pricing. The monthly BGSS price is based on the 򾺲app York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) monthly market settlement price. This applies to commercial customers who have not chosen a third-party supplier. The price for the natural gas commodity is passed on directly to customers with no profit included for NJNG.

Energy Saving Tips for Heating and Cooling your Business

Whether you own or lease your building, these heating and air conditioning tips may help you maximize energy efficiency, saving you money and preserving the environment.

  • "Tune-up" your heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) system - A maintenance contract ensures that your HVAC contractor will provide tune-ups before each cooling and heating season. The minimal fees for the contract will ultimately save energy and money; the tune-ups may help your system last longer, too.
  • Clean HVAC filters - Replace filters every month during peak cooling or heating seasons. 򾺲app filters usually only cost a few dollars, but dirty filters cost more to use, overwork the equipment and result in lower indoor air quality.
  • Use fans - Moving air can sometimes make higher temperature and/or humidity feel more comfortable. Fans can help delay or reduce the need for air conditioning, and each degree of higher temperature can save about 3 percent on cooling costs.

Looking for bigger savings?  򾺲app Jersey's Clean Energy Program offers significant financial incentives for commercial, industrial, and governmental customers to integrate energy efficient and renewable technologies into new construction, upgrades, and new cooling & heating equipment installations. Visit to learn more.


Veterans' Organization Residential Rate Credit

On August 10, 2018, Governor Murphy signed N.J.S.A 48:2-21.41 into law permitting a veterans’ organization to receive a residential rate for utility service delivered to the property at which the veterans’ organization primarily operates, if the residential rate is lower than the commercial rate for service delivered at that property.

The law applies to “veterans’ organizations,” which the law defines as “an organization dedicated to serving the needs of veterans of the armed forces” and that also satisfies at least one of the following criteria (not all three): (1) is chartered under federal law, (2) qualifies as a tax exempt organization under paragraph (19) of subsection (c) of section 501 of the federal Internal Revenue Code of 1986, 26 U.S.C. s.501 (c)(19) or (3) that is organized as a corporation under the “򾺲app Jersey Nonprofit Corporation Act,” N.J.S.15A:1-1 et seq.

An application PDF to apply this benefit can be found here.
