If NYSEG is your utility, it’s likely you live in a deregulated area of New York. A deregulated energy market means you don’t necessarily have to pay NYSEG for both energy transport and the energy itself. In New York, these costs are separate so you have the freedom to choose another company for energy supply. NYSEG will still make sure electricity and natural gas flow to your home or business, but your energy supplier can be a second party. Even if you’re happy with your NYSEG natural gas rates or electricity price, it doesn’t hurt to explore other options.

The main benefit of deregulation is you can shop for different energy prices. Compare NYSEG electric rates or NYSEG natural gas rates for supply with costs from other suppliers. If you find a lower rate, you can potentially save money each month on your energy bill. After you compare NYSEG electric rates or NYSEG natural gas rates for supply, also look at contract specifics. You might prefer a long-term rate, green energy or customer service options that better fit your lifestyle.
