With 51 of the 55 districts reporting, Old Bridge voters were leaning toward approving a ballot question asking whether to create an energy aggregation program, like those approved in several other towns in Middlesex County. The question received 7.996 yes votes and 5,686 no votes, according to the unofficial results. If approved, an ordinance, submitted by initiative petition, would amend the township code so Old Bridge could create a community energy aggregation program, under which it would purchase renewable electricity at discounted bulk rates and provide customers within its jurisdiction an opportunity to select a 100% renewable electricity alternative by 2030, preferably from regional sources.
