Fixed Rate Plans

Fixed rates contracts with Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) like New York Gas & Electric are always a better bet. This is because customers can save on the amount they pay for electricity per kilowatt-hour or for natural gas per therm in comparison to their local utility.

We do not recommend variable rates with ESCOs, because they are not regulated by the New York Public Service Commission and can end up being more expensive than rates with your local utility.

Financial Aid Programs

Depending on your local utility, you may be eligible for one of New York Gas & Electric's programs for financial aid. Some examples include:

Program Name Details
Budget Billing
  • Customers pay the same bill each month for 12 months
  • Annual usage is estimated based on customers' use the year before
  • Monthly bill is yearly estimate divided by 12
  • After 12 months customers receive a refund or owe money based on difference between estimaed and actual usage
Deferred Payment
  • Overdue payments are paid in monthly installments while customers continue to pay current bills
Payment Extension
  • Customers can get an extension to pay their bill, either in one payment or two
Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)
