Electric Information

Electricity is an essential service that affects virtually every aspect of modern life. Electricity allows people to turn on lights at the flip of a switch, watch television, use computers and keep food cold in the refrigerator.

The PSC is responsible for overseeing the performance of electric corporations under Commission jurisdiction to ensure that they provide safe, adequate, and efficient service at just and reasonable rates, with concern for the environment.

This page provides information about the electric utilities regulated by the Commission, the Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) operating in New York, programs and initiatives regarding electric supply and guides to help consumers make informed decisions regarding their electric service.
