What is RSS?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format for easily sharing Web content, including headlines, summaries, and links to full stories.

RSS enables you to obtain the most recent information without requiring you to constantly visit our Web site to see what’s new. NJR feeds include links back to the site for the full article, and they update automatically.

RSS feeds are free.

How can I receive RSS feeds?

To use RSS, you will need a special RSS reader (aggregator) that will allow you to collect and display the RSS content. NJR does not provide the required RSS reader. There are many available for download, none of which are associated with NJR.

After installing the RSS reader, you can add each feed manually from the Web site by clicking on the "XML" orange button next to the feed.

What is an RSS Reader/Aggregator?

RSS aggregators, also called readers, are software applications that can collect, update and display RSS feeds from a wide variety of sources. Most readers are separate “stand-alone” applications that you download and install. Others are web-based services you sign up for that work inside your browser.

There are a number of RSS readers available, many are free to download and free to use. RSS readers can vary slightly in how they look and act, so you may find yourself testing several before settling on one.
