Greater Brockport Utilities Information
Electricity Deregulation in New York
New Yorkers have had the opportunity to shop for their electricity provider since the late 1990s. The New York State Public Service Commission started by ‘unbundling’ one's energy bill – separating charges for delivering energy to a business (or home) from charges for the energy itself. It’s in the energy, or commodity, charges that you can choose an alternate provider. Alternate electric providers, known as Energy Service Companies, or ESCOs, in New York, compete for your business in most utility areas, including Greater Brockport.
