Regulations and Oversight

As an energy company, we’re subject to a large amount of regulation coming from the federal, state, and municipal levels.

New York State Public Service Commission

Our rates and terms of service are governed by the New York State Public Service Commission and the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, which regulate each state's electric, gas, and steam utilities.


Federal Energy Regulatory Commission

We also comply with the provisions of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Standards of Conduct and regularly update our Federal Energy Regulatory Commission documents. These provisions are intended to make sure companies like ours do not grant any undue preference to our own marketing and sales operations or to those of an affiliated company.
