New York energy rates

The New York electricity market is deregulated, which means businesses and residents have the power to choose their energy service company, or ESCO. This opens up possibilities for better electric plans and prices for the people of New York.

New York is one of the most expensive states in the nation for electricity, with residents paying an average of 17.17 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) in March 2020. For reference, the national average is 13.08 cents per kWh. Exercising your energy choice could allow you to find a cheaper electric rate with the ESCO you prefer. In the Choose Energy marketplace, ESCOs are often offering rates as low as 4.99 cents per kWh. Enter your ZIP code above to see rates in your area.
