electricity supply choices

Electricity customers can purchase their electricity supply from NYSEG or a supplier other than NYSEG (also called an energy services company or ESCO).

Electricity Supply Choices:

  • NYSEG Supply Service consists of variable NYSEG electricity supply and transition charges and a fixed NYSEG delivery charge. The supply charge changes each month as the market price of electricity fluctuates.
  • ESCO Supply Service consists of an ESCO electricity supply charge, a variable NYSEG transition charge and a fixed NYSEG delivery charge. How much you pay for your electricity supply depends on your agreement with your supplier. Contact an ESCO if you wish to select this option.

Customers in the same service classifications will pay the same delivery and transition charges regardless of supply choice.


NYSEG offers a variable price for electricity supply or customers may purchase
their electricity supply from an ESCO. NYSEG no longer offers a fixed electricity
supply price.

As of January 1, 2010 customers currently being billed on the NYSEG Fixed Price Option have been automatically placed in the NYSEG Supply Service rate.
