Main> Energy Choice
Now, you can choose your electricity and natural gas supplier.

As a result of deregulation in New York, you have the option to choose who will be your energy supplier. But regardless who you purchase your supply of energy from, Central Hudson will be your regulated energy delivery company in the Hudson Valley region.

Winter weather is headed our way -- 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.
