NY Public Service Commission Predicting Lower Electricity Bills For This Summer


As the summer season approaches, the New York State Public Service Commission says the average residential electricity bill is expected to be lower this year than last year throughout a majority of the state. The reason for the lower expected bills is due to energy efficiency initiatives.

The commission says the price for electricity paid by full-service residential customers on average will be lower than a year ago, depending on that customer’s location, demand and actual market prices. No specifics were given on where prices may not be reduced in the state.

“Most of New York is expected to experience lower energy prices this year than last year, and that is good news for residential and business customers,” said Commission Chair Rory M. Christian. “We will continue making investments in energy efficiency and the clean-energy grid that will help us all combat climate change and further stabilize energy prices long term.”

The Commission reports that the statewide average supply costs for full service residential customers this summer from June through September is expected to be $207.88, down nearly 3 percent from $231.95 last year. Total actual summer supply costs will vary depending on the region of the State and individual usage.
