choiceUntil relatively recently New York State Residents were not able to choose their energy supplier. They were limited by whoever was the utility company responsible for supplying the power to whatever area they were living in.

Today, however, consumers can choose among a large number of ESCOs (Energy Service Companies/Energy Supply Companies) such as IDT Energy and others as their energy supplier.

This choice gives the consumer the option of picking among many companies which are now in competition for customers and are forced to provide the best possible services and prices in order to maintain their competitive advantage.

When researching which company is best for you, remember to look not only for good prices but whether there is an option to buy “green”, that is, to include some of your power sources from renewable energy technologies such as solar, wind or biomass.

In New York City consumers can choose to either continue with Con Ed (Consolidated Edison) as their supplier as well deliverer of power; or they can choose among many ESCOs  for energy supply, including IDT Energy , Direct Energy, Ambit Energy, and many others.
