NJUMP/CJUMP Natural Gas Purchasing Program
NJUMP and CJUMP are Interlocal Pools created for public agencies to purchase natural gas and related services on the Black Hills Energy and SourceGas distribution systems respectively. These joint energy purchasing consortiums are sponsored by NASB.
NJUMP: Nebraska Joint Utility Management Program
CJUMP: Choice Joint Utilities Management Program
NJUMP and CJUMP were designed to provide a high degree of price certainty in the purchase of natural gas at competitive prices for Nebraska school districts and ESUs to make more funds available for technology, staff development, and other educational goals.
Each program is governed by a Board of Trustees consisting of representatives from its members as well as a designee of NASB's Executive Director and a designated officer from the NASB Board of Directors. NJUMP became operational in 2004 and CJUMP became operational in 2012. NJUMP and CJUMP now provide nearly 110 Nebraska schools with natural gas and related services.
Centerpoint Energy is the Program Administrator for NJUMP. Public Alliance for Community Energy (ACE) is the Program Administrator of CJUMP. The Program Administrators provide energy products and services to various users of natural gas. Centerpoint can provide individual analysis for interested school districts. They also provide the billing services to participating members of the Pool.
