02/28/14 New Capacity Pricing Zone
In the fall of 2013 the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) proposal to establish a new capacity pricing zone. The new zone will be called the Lower Hudson Valley Zone (LHV). This pricing zone will include the NYISO load zones G, H and I. Effective May 1, 2014, NYSEG's variable supply costs will change to include a third pricing zone. The West will remain unchanged, including zones A, C, D and E. Zones G, H and I will be in the new LHV pricing zone, and zone F will be in the East pricing zone. All rate impacts will be due to changes in the new capacity prices for LHV.
01/21/10 Ancillary Service Charge/NYPA Transmission Access Charge (NTAC)
Effective January 1, 2010 NYSEG will no longer collect New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) Ancillary Service/ NYPA Transmission Access Charge (NTAC) charges from all customers in the transition charge and will stop reimbursements to electricity suppliers (also known as energy services companies or ESCOs) for NYISO Ancillary Service/NTAC charges they incur from the NYISO. ESCOs will be responsible for the collection of any NYISO charges from their customers. The NYISO Ancillary Service/NTAC charges for full-service customers taking supply from NYSEG will be moved to the customers’ variable supply charges. Hourly priced full-service customers will see the Ancillary Service/NTAC charges as a separate dollar/kilowatt hour line item on the bill.
