The reviews take place in the 8th and 12th months in New Jersey.

EPP is calculated on distribution charges only when you have selected an alternate electric generation supplier. The amount that a supplier charge is not included in the EPP amount, means those charges are over and above the EPP calculated amount. The amount due is adjusted higher or lower than your usual amount on the anniversary month of your enrollment in order to bring your balance for the year to zero. To ensure the appropriate payment amount for the new plan year, your account is reviewed yearly.
