Deals on Fixed Rates

We recommend fixed rates with alternate suppliers like Chief Energy, because consumers can save on the rate they pay for electricity per kilowatt-hour or for natural gas per therm by locking in a competitive rate for a good period of time.

Variable rates are not advisable, because they are not regulated by the New York Public Service Commission. You may end up paying more for variable rates with an alternate supplier than what your local utility offers.

Renewable Energy

Customers can purchase Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) in addition to their regular service with Chief Energy. RECs support green energy projects elsewhere in the United States, and help to move the country's dependence away from traditional energy sources.

Renewable energy sources include wind, solar, and biomass. These sources of energy generation leave almost no negative impact on the enviornment.

Chief Energy does not offer renewable energy options at this time.

Other Services

In addition to providing electricity and natural gas supply to residential and commercial customers, Chief Energy also delivers fuel oil to the same customer bases.

Additionally, the company provides hot water heater installations as well as service on boilers and burners. Chief Energy can also help customers meet compliance standards.
