New! Savings on Natural Gas
Consumers have faced higher natural gas prices in recent years, but now NYPIRG's Fuel Buyers Group is using its consumer bargaining power to bring members savings of up to 10% a year. With the deregulation of the natural gas industry the actual cost of natural gas has been separated from the cost of its delivery, allowing consumers the opportunity to shop around for a better price.
NYPIRG Contracts with reliable, local energy service companies to provide a discount to residents of New York City, Long Island, Westchester, Orange and Rockland who use natural gas. There will be no interruption in your service and the utility will continue to read your meter and respond to emergencies.
NYPIRG offers a month-to-month program and you can leave at any time. You are required to fill out a standard, Public Service Commission-approved form which authorizes the company we recommend to supply you with natural gas.
Your service and supply will never be interrupted. Your local utility will always be responsible for providing you with gas. In addition, you always have the choice to return to the utility or choose another marketer at no charge.
The utility files a tariff with the Public Service Commission and is available for review on their website. The transportation charges are based on your actual usage and the charges are calculated according to the rate classification of your account.
The local utility will continue to read your meter.
Nothing has changed when you have a gas emergency. Call the local utility's emergency number just as you always would. The utility is responsible for their meters, lines, and equipment. Please contact the utility if you have a problem.
To join, please fill out our online request form. You can also call NYPIRG at (800) 695-4645 to fill out an application via fax and charge your dues to a credit card. Your tax-deductible membership dues are renewable every August.
When we receive you application, we will immediately send it to one of our local energy providers for a standard credit check and processing. The application needs to be processed by the 15th of the month, in order to begin service on the
first of the next month. Otherwise, service will begin the month after next. You will receive confirmation from Stuyvesant Energy about the start of your service.
