What is NJ SEM all about? Why was it formed?
The New Jersey Sustainable Energy Meeting (SEM) was created by municipal business administrators to share the services of energy consultants and legal counsel with a goal of purchasing energy wisely, legally and economically. Our objectives were to achieve energy savings, price certainty and price stability for members, through cooperative purchasing with a program that made procurement easier, understandable and transparent for our members. SEM was intended to serve as a knowledge-based energy purchasing group designed to help New Jersey municipalities reduce their energy costs, while at the same time offering value added services such as advice and education on energy related matters.
