ACES is the Alliance for Competitive Energy Services and was created to save New Jersey Schools time and money, to make procurement easier and to provide an ongoing resource for school boards, business administrators and superintendents. The ACES program is sponsored by the NJSBA, the NJASBO and NJASA, ensuring that the program has individual school districts interests as the highest priority. The ACES program has a long standing success rate and has been serving New Jersey school boards for 15 years.
In 2014, NJASA and NJSBA expanded the ACES service offerings to include ACES Plus - the next generation of cost savings strategies. ACES Plus facilitates the implementation of sustainability projects at schools, including renewable energy and energy efficiency. The program provides objective advice to help districts navigate through the financial and technical issues related to the development of advanced energy projects.
