Thanks to electricity deregulation in New York, business owners can now decide where they buy their electric service. By transitioning to a commercial electricity supplier (like UGI EnergyLink), businesses can purchase their energy from a supplier other than the local distribution company in the area. New York business owners—whether they are based in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, or Staten Island—can and should shop around for the best price on their electricity service. Given the challenging economic circumstances in the state and throughout much of the country, businesses are best served to find ways to cut costs.
Current Commercial Electricity Rate in New York
The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reports that the average commercial electricity rate in New York as of March 2013 was 14.74 cents per kWh (kilowatts per hour), far exceeding the national average of 11.59 cents per kWh. A typical small business setting in New York—whether it be a pizza shop or theater—may consume about 5,000 kWh per month, which would bring its monthly energy bill to about $$737. For this business, saving just a few pennies on the amount paid per KWh can make a real difference on the company’s bottom line. What if the business could pay two cents less per kWh? Its monthly energy bill would drop $100 to $637—resulting in annual savings of about $1,200.
While exact numbers will vary, this should give you a general idea of the savings opportunity so easily available to you.
