The New York State Department of State Division of Consumer Protection actively participates in proceedings concerning the availability, pricing and quality of electricity and natural gas service in the State. The Division submits formal filings commenting on proposals by utilities or regulators that affect the price, reliability and quality of electricity and natural gas service. Division experts also testify on behalf of consumers before the New York State Public Service Commission in proceedings involving proposed natural gas and electric delivery rate increases by major utilities. The Division's efforts and activities have helped save consumers hundreds of millions of dollars on their gas and electric bills in recent years.
The links below provide information about the Division's activities and formal submissions in regulatory proceedings.
