The Difference Between a Utility and an ESCO

If you currently receive an electric bill from NYSEG, this is your utility company. They distribute energy to a designated region. If you live in NYSEG electric 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 New York State Gas and Electric distributes.

Since New York has a deregulated energy market, you can choose your supplier. Your supplier determines your rate, so committing to a new one can help you reduce your average bill. If you are not with a supplier, New York State Electric and Gas will provide a price to compare for your electric supply. You can use this number to compare ESCO rates and find a reasonable market price.

What is the price to compare in NYSEG?

The price to compare is a default rate charged by the utility company to a customer who is not with a third party supplier. In NYSEG, the price to compare differs from one bill to another. To know what the current nyseg electric rates are, simply review your last electric bill.

With the rates changing month to month, budgeting is tough. Look at fixed rate options to better plan for your utility expenses each month.
