so who are you choosing this year for your electric provider/gas supplier this time?

If we all have different suppliers now, maybe we can find out some actual rates from our current bills, to help us decide what our best options are for the upcoming year.

I tried calling NYSEG and NYSEG Solutions on Friday, but they were both closed for Thanksgiving. I'm going to try again today, I'll let you know what I found out. I should have kept my last bill with the rates from last month from NYSEG but it got in the trash before I realized I needed to save it for comparsion.

I had NYSEG fixed last year.

Ranger,you can go on line and go to NYSEG and registar and find out what your rate is and stuff.
As for figuring out who has the best rate ... NYSEG was as foggy as can be ,no straight answers,wishy washy. I thought maybe they were there to help .... but I think its all greed.....

Ok, this may sound like a really stupid question, but what are we choosing? Is it who supplies our electric through NYSE, or if we choose one of the others, such as energenix, will our bills be from them now and NYSEG will have nothing to do with it?
I am so confused by all this!
The last time I got the thing in the mail to choose I just didn't send it in and stuck with whatever Ihad, which now I am not even sure what that is!!

yes you are choosing who supplies your electric and/or gas, I'm not sure as I have always stayed with NYSEG, but the bills probably always come from whoever the supplier is, but there are always deliver charges as part of your bill because they are using NYSEG lines for delivery.

I called 3 suppliers yesterday to get pricing and choose to stay with NYSEG's variable rate

NYSEG was fixed at .089 variable was .065

NYSEG Solutions was fixed at .083

Energy Co-op of NY was peak at.066 off peak was .054

if you notice the chart I posted yesterday, it has different rates than the ones I got over the phone

It's not easy "voicing your choice" when it's so hard to get the correct rates in the first place.

I hope this helps to save you some headaches, and time waiting for someone to finally answer the phone.

Wasn't it found that the fixed rate was overall cheaper than the variable rate?

Ranger,

are you sure you want variable?

I go with NYSEG fixed rate every year (so far). Our usage works out cheaper that way.

I also agree the fixed rate is the way to go.
