Central Hudson Electric Supply Rate Hikes Slam Dutchess, Ulster, Columbia, and Greene County
When comparing offers from Energy Service companies (ESCOs), it may be helpful for you to know what Central Hudson’s supply charges for electricity and natural gas have been recently. Bear in mind the prices given here do not include energy delivery charges, which are regulated, stable, and apply whether you receive your energy supply from Central Hudson or an ESCO. Also, Central Hudson does not profit from energy supply costs or our energy purchasing services. Payments toward the supply portion of your energy bill are passed along to the companies that provide the supply of gas and electricity that Central Hudson delivers.
CONCERNED ABOUT WINTER SUPPLY PRICE VARIABILITY? CONSIDER FIXED PRICE OPTIONS: Winter is here — and with it comes the colder temperatures that increase energy usage, leading to the potential for higher supply prices and energy bills, as occurred throughout the Northeast last winter. At Central Hudson, we’ve taken additional steps to help manage the unpredictability of electricity and gas supply prices during winter months when weather and other factors may significantly impact wholesale market prices. But if you prefer greater price certainty for electricity or natural gas supply, research the many fixed price and other alternative supply offerings available from the numerous qualified Energy Services Companies (ESCOs) that offer such options. You may find a list of all ESCOs on our website, or the New York State Power to Choose website. While fixed price options may not necessarily result in the lowest given supply price during any season, they can provide the peace of mind that helps to better manage your household budget.
