Albany, NY – 10/23/14 – The New York State Public Service Commission (Commission), in an effort to avoid a repeat of last winter’s large price increases, announced today that utilities and third-party energy providers have agreed to provide customers with more information and more refined tools to help customers manage their energy bills. In addition, the Commission said it is expanding its own outreach efforts, including launching a newly enhanced website that can help residential and small commercial consumers identify energy products to meet their needs to help control energy costs.
“The unprecedented cold weather last winter was particularly challenging for the many people who experienced unusually high energy bills,” said Commission Chair Audrey Zibelman. “To help ensure such problems are avoided, we have been working with the utilities and third-party energy providers on ways to reduce price volatility and provide more options to help consumers better manage and control their energy bills.”
