About Central Hudson Electric
Central Hudson is an electricity utility that serves New York’s mid-Hudson River Valley. They serve over 300,000 electric customers. They own 580 pole miles of transmission lines and 7,200 pole miles of overhead power lines over a 2,600 square-mile area.
Central Hudson’s early history starts in 1900 when its founders purchased two energy companies in the state. Over the next 100 years, the company merged with more energy utilities in the state. By the year 2000, all entities were under CH Energy Group, Inc. In 2013, Central Hudson joined Fortis Inc., allowing the company to make better infrastructure changes with nearly $50 million in financial benefits.
The Difference Between a Utility and an ESCO
Central Hudson is a utility. This type of company sends energy to a distinct region. If you live in Central Hudson’s service area, they’ll maintain your power lines, respond to outages and send you a bill every month. Your supplier, or Energy Supply Company (ESCO), provides the energy that Central Hudson distributes.
Since New York has a deregulated energy market, you can choose your supplier. They determine your rate, so committing to a new one can help you reduce your average bill. If you don’t pick a supplier, Central Hudson will provide a price to compare or a market rate for energy. You can use this number to compare ESCO rates and find a reasonable price. In any case, this rate can be found on your recent electric bill to compare against.
