What does deregulated energy do for New Yorkers?

Deregulated energy gives consumers the power to choose

In the late 1990s, the New York Public Service Commission deregulated energy across New York State. Several other states also deregulated energy around this time in the hopes of lowering energy costs for residents.

Deregulating the market kept utilities in-place, but allowed for the formation of Energy Service Companies, or ESCOs, which serve as suppliers. Utilities deliver energy, maintain power and gas lines, and bill customers. ESCOs purchase energy and sell it to consumers. 

Because of the increased competition, ESCOs offer lower rates and extras to customers. Look at a list of energy suppliers in New York and you’ll see just how much choice New York residents have in their energy suppliers.

In addition to the increased choice and improved service, deregulation changed billing for customers. Your bill from your utility will include both supply and delivery costs. 

  • Supply costs come from Just Energy and change monthly based on your energy use and the per kilowatt or therm energy rate in your contract. 

  • Delivery costs come from your utility and are based on usage.

Deregulation simplifies switching energy providers

Step 1

Call Just Energy and speak with an energy expert. They’ll work with you to find the best plan and rate for your home. 

Step 2

Get in touch with your current ESCO and let them know you’ll be switching providers.
