Freedom of choice – Natural Gas and Electric Deregulation

As a consumer, you no longer have to purchase your natural gas and electricity from your local utility. New York State Utilities provide their consumers the freedom to choose to purchase their natural gas and electricity from an approved Energy Services Company (ESCO).

Freedom of Choice is a good thing. Choosing M&R Energy, as your natural gas and electric supplier will put money back into your home or business. We will supply your natural gas and electricity but your utility company will still deliver it and provide all customer support functions such as system maintenance and restoration of service follwing emergencies, as they always have. The safety and reliability you have come to depend on will not change.

Your utility’s rates for the “delivery” services will continue to be regulated by the New York State Public Service Commission and you will continue to receive one bill from your local utility regardles of which company supplies your energy.

There are two parts to your natural gas and electric bills; supply and delivery. As a consumer you have the choice to shop for the supply portion.

Electric Supply represents about 40% of your current electric bill. This is the portion of the bill that M&R Energy will compete against the utility. If you spend $100 a month on your electric bill then an estimated $40 is spent on the supply portion.

Gas Supply represents about 40% of your current natural gas bill. This is the portion of the bill that M&R Energy will compete against the utility. If you spend $100 a month on your natural gas bill then an estimated $40 is spent on the supply portion.

To manage the electric and gas supply portion of your bills M&R Energy offers pricing options tailored to your purchasing requirements. As a customer of M&R Energy you can choose from one of the following pricing options:

Fixed Price Option – allows you the choice to purchase your natural gas or electric at a fixed price for an agreed upon term. Typically when you purchase from your utility company your supply cost changes monthly, however, under the fixed price option you are electing to have a fixed rate for a period of time. This fixed rate can be for as little as 3 months or as long as 2 years. You may want to choose this option to protect your rate from increasing higher and to assist you in setting a budget for your energy cost(s).

Variable Price Option – This is a variable rate that changes monthly, based on market fluctuations. For those customers who stay on target with the market and are looking to take advantage of market fluctuations.
