Hourly Energy Pricing for Businesses

As a business customer of Rockland Electric, you can choose to have your electric supply priced on an hourly basis. This pricing plan is the Basic Generation Service-Commercial Industrial Energy Price (BGS-CIEP), or the actual real-time cost to purchase energy on an hourly basis.

How will Basic Generation Service-Commercial Industrial Energy Price affect my account?


The supply portion of your electric usage will no longer be charged at a fixed rate for a given period of time. Your energy charges will vary each hour of the day, and every day of the week based on market conditions.

In order to participate, you may be required to upgrade your existing meter at an additional cost.

How do I enroll in Basic Generation Service-Commercial Industrial Energy Pricing?


To enroll, complete and return the BGS-CIEP Authorization Form before the second business day of the calendar year.

Please note that you’ll need to remain on this option for a twelve-month period beginning June 1, unless you choose an alternate supplier for your electric supply.
