Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) Information
As part of the Electric Discount and Energy Competition Act of New Jersey, gas and electric utilities are required to support EDI standards. EDI is a statewide protocol of electronic data and business standards. NJNG supports both EDI and non-EDI transactions for suppliers who are eligible to transport in the NJNG service territory.
How a supplier chooses to bill their customers determines the type of EDI transactions they can use.
Suppliers who use the utility consolidated or dual billing options can retrieve usage history, enrollment and receive billing transactions through EDI.
Suppliers who use supplier consolidated billing can retrieve usage history and enroll customers through EDI.
NJNG offers EDI testing one to two times a year to natural gas suppliers that are eligible to serve customers in the NJNG service territory. If you are an eligible supplier interested in EDI testing, please send an e-mail to NaturalSolutions@njng.com. Click here for a link to the list of eligible suppliers.
In addition, NJNG offers non-EDI transactions to enable suppliers to perform account maintenance.
Energy Consultants who have been licensed by the BPU can retrieve customer usage history. This can be done through EDI or as a non-EDI transaction. Licensed Energy Suppliers are encouraged to contact NJNG by sending an e-mail to NaturalSolutions@njng.com.
