Learn about deregulation and New York electric companies
The energy industry is deregulated in New York. In regulated areas of the United States, consumers pay their utility companies for both energy transmission and supply. However, a deregulated energy industry means the prices for electricity supply and electric utility service are separate. New York electric companies, such as Con Edison, are in charge of energy transportation and distrubution. They ship energy from generation facilities to homes and businesses. Other companies, called energy services companies, or ESCOs, sell electricity and natural gas plans to New Yorkers. These plans charge for the energy supply.
