New York State Electric and Gas Bill Relief Program
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the New York State Public Service Commission has approved the Electric and Gas Bill Relief Program for income-eligible New Yorkers.
Residential customers who receive qualifying government assistance will receive a bill credit on their past-due balance for service through May 1, 2022.
Note: All customers are responsible for bills after May 1, 2022.
To qualify for a bill credit, you must:
- Be enrolled in Orange & Rockland’s Energy Affordability Program by December 31, 2022, or;
- Have received benefits under New York state’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program (ERAP) or the Home Energy Assistance Program-Regular Arrears Supplement (RAS).
If you are enrolled in Orange & Rockland’s Energy Affordability program or received ERAP or RAS benefits, your bill credit will be processed automatically, and you do not need to take any action. In addition, your service will not be suspended for non-payment while your bill credit is being processed.
