As everyone knows, the extreme cold weather has caused widely reported increases to electricity and natural gas costs across New York State. Initially, Energy Supply Companies (ESCOs), like BlueRock Energy and others, were criticized for high price levels while the incumbent regulated monopoly utility companies posted lower than market prices and did not hesitate to inform customers how their prices would have been more advantageous. The ESCOs all were telling customers that this was an "apples and oranges" comparison, and the monopoly suppliers would be catching up and charging higher prices. Now the utilities are doing just that - charging the higher prices, just on a two month delay. NYSEG, RGE and National Grid are all reporting those prices now. Here are two links regarding the monopoly utilities. We thank our current customers for trusting us during this volatile market and welcome new customers to join the growing BlueRock Energy family to avoid the higher charges they will experience from their utility in the upcoming months.
