As always, Stream is working hard to support the New York market through the pending New York Public Service Commission (PSC) Reset Order, which has now been extended to take effect on February 14, 2021*. It’s been quite a while since the initial announcement of this order, so let’s recap what you need to know.
Reset Order Summary
Earlier this year, the New York PSC adopted an order requiring retail energy companies to change the products they offer in New York to meet certain standards. Stream got to work updating its offer to remain operational in the state and to support your business. For a more in-depth look at the order and how it impacts you and your customers, make sure you read the FAQs carefully.
What About the Runway?
We won’t be extending the runway, originally intended to help support New York Associates as they moved their customers to the new green plan. The reset order deadline has been extended several times, creating a much longer, natural runway for you to work with.
In response to the order, Stream set out to minimize its impact and remain operational in New York.
For Electricity Customers
A new Stream Green 50 plan, designed solely for residential electricity customers, is available. This compliant plan follows the incumbent utility’s pricing with an added monthly charge of $4.95** to help offset 50% in-state renewable energy. Stream Green 50 is the only offer available for new and existing customers in New York.
For Gas Customers
To continue to serve new and renewing New York gas customers, Stream is offering new 12-month and 24-month fixed-term gas plans in CONED, NYSEG, NATGRID, and RGE. The fixed term helps ensure your customers can stick with Stream and minimize the risk of being returned to the local utility once the order takes effect.
