How to Choose an ESCO
National Fuel is your local utility, which means they are your automatic provider of natural gas service. This includes:
- Delivery, or all costs related to getting energy to your home
- Supply, or the cost of the actual energy you consume + customer service charges
If you choose an alternate Energy Supply Company (ESCO) you can save on your supply charges. You will need to open your National Fuel account before shopping around for an ESCO plan, since the ESCO will need your account information to take over supply service.
Learn more about what an ESCO does.
Terminating your Service
If you are moving out of National Fuel territory, you will need to call customer service or visit in person at least 10 days in advance of your move, to be sure that you are not billed for extra days. For natural gas customers, a technician will need to come to your home to get an accurate final meter reading.
In order to cancel your ESCO contract, you will not need to take any extra steps.
However, to avoid paying an early cancellation fee, you will need to contact your ESCO usually around 30 days in advance. Check your contract conditions to know your plan's specifics.
Understanding your Bill
Your National Fuel bill is divided up by supply, delivery, and state and local taxes. Most residential customers are classified under the SC1 rate category.
The New York Public Service Commission (NYPSC) regulates your National Fuel charges - which means that all rate increases have been approved by NYPSC.
