appliancesOriginally scheduled to last from February 12, 2010 until February 21st, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority decided to extend the “Great Appliance Swap Out” program until the funding runs out. The program was endowed with $17 million in order to give rebates to consumers who purchase energy-efficient appliances including refrigerators, freezers, washing machines and dishwashers. So far the NYSERDA has distributed up to $555 rebate per purchase amounting to over $7.7 million in rebates so far. New Yorkers can continue benefiting from this unique program until all the funding is gone.

trees in fallOpening up the power supply industry to competition through deregulation not only allows individual consumers to choose their energy providers, but they now can also choose whether to support more environmentally friendly sources for producing electricity.

IDT Energy has a ‘Buy Green’ option for its customers. Choosing this option means that a certain amount of the electricity a consumer receives is produced from sources which use our natural resources in a way that does no harm to the environment. These sources may include wind power, running water, solar power and organic matter, which are all renewable and are relatively clean compared to the more standard sources of electricity which often include the burning of fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gas.

IDT Energy is proud to say that they have joined the State to help create a center for environmentally friendly technologies here in New York. Within 10 years New York hopes to obtain 25% of its power from green sources, and IDT is playing an important role in this development.

windmillblueskyyellowfieldIn Rockland and Orange Counties, New York, IDT Energy is one of two providers of electricity which is generated by wind and water to consumers who are served by Orange and Rockland Utilities Inc.

The good news is that this green solution is actually coming down in price, making this alternative source for electricity production more attractive to consumers.

It is a sign that renewable energy is becoming a viable alternative to traditional forms of electricity production as business in this sector increases, while the costs goe down.

This is the first time that the green power alternative was actually cheaper than power produced by coal, natural gas, nuclear power or hydro plants.

In a recent decision IDT Energy will be using BP Energy as its preferred supplier of natural gas as well as electricity in New York State.
IDT Energy is a residential energy supply company which serves about 414,000 customers in the state of New York. It has forged a long-term agreement with BP Energy to be IDT’s supplier of choice.
The deal stipulates certain conditions which will need to be satisfied by BP Energy so that IDT’s ability to purchase electricity and natural gas from them will be assured.
Geoff Rochwarger, CEO of IDT Energy, said: “We are very pleased to forge this strategic relationship with BP Energy. This agreement enhances our ability to provide our customers with competitive rates and outstanding service throughout our New York service areas.”

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.

sunsetNew York State residents can choose from a large list of ESCOs, Energy Supply Companies, including IDT Energy, Green Mountain Energy, ConEdison Solutions and many others.  Among the benefits of this freedom to choose is that the consumer can decide to support the development of green power- renewable energy sources which generate electricity without damaging the environment.

These renewable energy sources include biomass, wind, solar, solid waste, with the majority supplied from hydropower.

For only a slightly higher cost in your electricity bill you will be:
1.    Protecting the environment from the stresses of fossil fuel use.
2.    Diversifying fuel supply which makes the New York’s electric system more reliable and helps stabilize energy prices.
3.    Helping insure that money spent on energy stays in New York since the need for imported fossil fuels is reduced.
4.    Helping to create jobs by encouraging investment in environmentally friendly producers.
5.    Helping to improve air quality which reduces illnesses.
6.    Leaving a cleaner world for our children.

There are many Green Power service providers to choose from in New York State. Get in touch with one of them and begin to make a difference, in our world and the world we bequeath to our children.
