To promote a competitive energy market in New York State, Con Edison encourages its customers to compare prices and shop for energy. Your energy bill consists of supply and delivery charges. Our full-service electricity and gas customers buy both supply and delivery service from Con Edison. Retail access customers pay for delivery service from Con Edison and for supply from an Energy Service Company (ESCO) who competes to provide you energy supply.
Energy Service Companies
Con Edison and ESCOs shop for energy in the marketplace, and those prices vary from day-to-day and month-to-month. Through Con Edison's PowerYourWay program, electricity and gas customers can find a list of NYPSC-registered ESCOs. Some suppliers offer special incentives and online sign up.
If you sign up with an ESCO for your energy supply, Con Edison will continue to deliver electricity and gas to your home or business, safely and reliably, at delivery rates specified in our tariff. We will always respond to our customers' service emergencies.
For information on competitive energy markets in New York State, contact the PSC by calling 1-888-ASK PSC1 (1-888-275-7721). You may also call our PowerYourWay Information Line at 1-800-780-2884.
Con Edison's Electricity Supply Services
All Con Edison customers purchase delivery service from Con Edison. However, customers have the choice to purchase electricity supply from Con Edison or from others. If you buy electricity from Con Edison, the total supply charges on your bill are made up of Supply (described below), the Merchant Function Charge, and Gross Receipts Taxes and other surcharges.
If you are billed under a residential or small non-residential service classification, (“SC” or “EL” 1, 2, 6, 7, or 12 energy only), Supply, which is determined per kilowatthour (“kWh”), is composed of the Market Supply Charge (MSC) and MSC adjustments.
If you are billed under a demand-billed service classification (EL 5, EL 8, EL 9, EL 12 demand, or EL 13), Supply is divided into Energy Supply, which is determined per kWh, and Demand Supply, which is determined per kilowatt (“kW”). The charge for Energy Supply is composed of the MSC and MSC adjustments. The per-kW charge for Demand Supply is the estimated cost of capacity, as shown on the Statement of MSC - Capacity.
