Regulatory Summary

07/08: The New York State Public Service Commission adopted a three-year rate plan for Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc.’s (O&R) electric delivery service. Rates for the company’s electric delivery service have not been increased generally since 1993. The Commission today authorized O&R to increase rates for electric delivery services in order to generate incremental annual electric revenues of nearly $15.6 million in each of the three rate years ending June 30, 2009, 2010, and 2011. This amount results in an increase in total company electric revenues of approximately 2.5 percent per year. Source: New York State Public Service Commission

9/05: The New York State Public Service Commission has programs specifically for business/industry consumers. Access to many of these programs is through New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). Here is the current list of funding opportunities found at the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority Web site.

One program of interest is Program Opportunity Notice 909 (PON 909). $10 million is available for Electrical Efficiency projects on a first-come, first-served basis through December 30, 2005, or until funds are fully committed, whichever comes first. $4.1 million is still available. NYSERDA is administrator of the New York Energy $martSM program. They are requesting applications from contractors for performance-based incentives to implement cost-effective electrical efficiency improvements and custom measures that provide summer demand reduction for eligible customers. This program works through the contractor rather than directly with the customer.

Eligible measures include lighting, motors, variable-speed drives, energy management systems, certain process equipment, packaged air conditioning and chillers, and custom measures that result in electric-energy savings or demand reductions.

1/05: In August 2004 the New York State Public Service Commission published two proceedings related to Provider of Last Resort responsibilities: Statement of Policy on Further Steps Toward Competition in Retail Energy Markets (PDF 241 KB, 104 pp) and Unbundling Track, Statement of Policy on Unbundling and Order Directing Tariff Filings (PDF 90 KB, 44 pp). These documents contain historic information as well as views toward the future in the deregulated utility world of New York. The NPSC has worked hard to not restrict methods used in the markets they are trying to create and to offer many options.

1/04: In October 2001 the New York State Public Service Commission approved Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation's restructuring plan. Central Hudson's was the last restructuring plan to be approved.

6/01: The New York Public Service Commission approved standards governing the electronic exchange of routine business information and data among electricity and natural gas service providers in New York. The PSC also issued an order to establish uniform retail access billing and payment processing practices that will facilitate a single bill option for customers who buy power and/or natural gas from ESCOs. These orders are designed to facilitate retail energy competition in New York and provide for efficient single-billing options for all New York electricity and natural gas customers.

3/01: The PSC approved rules for customers in New York State Electric & Gas territory to receive a credit for switching to a competitive electricity supplier. The old "shopping credit" was set, at 3.71 cents per kilowatthour, below market prices. Competitors could not beat the that price with market prices consistently being higher. The new "shopping credit" will be tied to the going market price plus a small amount for administrative costs, making it easier for competitors to deal with wholesale prices that fluctuate seasonally. The market-based shopping credit is expected to entice more customers to switch suppliers.

11/98: The PSC ordered utilities, beginning in 4/00, to inform customers of the sources of their electricity and their amount of environmentally "clean" power. 

6/98: PSC set rules for a Systems Benefit Charge to fund R&D related to energy service, storage, generation, the environment, and renewables; pilot programs for energy management for low-income consumers; and environmental protection.

1997 to 1998: The PSC approved restructuring orders for six utilities in the State (see utility plans in the "retail access" table).

5/96: The PSC issued its decision to restructure NY's electric power industry. The Competitive Opportunities Case adopted the goal of having a competitive wholesale market by 1997, and a competitive retail market by early 1998. Electric utilities are required to submit restructuring plans by 10/96. It also states that utilities should have a reasonable opportunity to recover stranded costs consistent with the goals of restructuring.
