The New York Public Service Commission (NYPSC) and Penelec are responsible for determining the eligibility status of suppliers. All eligible suppliers must post a bond that will ensure their financial responsibility and the supply of electricity to satisfy their contracts or agreements.
Currently, there are no suppliers that have met all the requirements to serve New York customers.
For phone numbers and websites of eligible suppliers, you can call the NYPSC toll-free at 1-888-ASK-PSC1 or for additional consumer information and resources, visit the New York State Department of Public Service website*.
