Participants in the NYSEG service territory (Bedford, Lewisboro, North Salem, Pound Ridge and Somers) will be receiving letters notifying them of the new contract beginning on the first meter read after April 30. The letters vary a little based on the town and whether the account has switched supply options as follows:
Letter 1: (applies to most accounts in Bedford, North Salem, Pound Ridge), The town was in the renewable default, will continue in the renewable default, and you will remain so unless you change or opt out.
Letter 2: (applies to a small number of accounts in Bedford, North Salem, Pound Ridge)The town was in the renewable default, will remain so, you had switched to standard supply, and we’ll keep you in that unless you request a change.
Letter 3: (applies to most accounts in Lewisboro) The town was in the standard default, will change to renewable as default, and you will be enrolled into the renewable option unless you request a change.
Letter 4: (applies to most residents in Somers) The town was in the standard default, will stay in the standard default, and you will remain in standard supply unless you request a change.
Letter 5: (applies to a small number of residents in Somers) The town was in the standard default, will stay in the standard default, you switched to renewable previously and you will remain enrolled in renewable unless you request a change.
Letter 6: (applies to all customers in these rate classes) Day/night and time-of-use current customers will be advised that we don’t offer these differentiated rates, so if they want to remain in the program they would have to contact us to voluntarily re-enroll, otherwise their participation will end at the end of April. The economics of this decision depend on your particular usage pattern.
Further to Letter 6 and day/night/TOU rates…Day/night and TOU rates are lower at night – after 11:30 in the case of day/night rates. To benefit from this you would need to be shifting some of your usage to those hours. For some people whose usage is heavier during the day, the single Westchester Power fixed rate (which would apply to peak and off peak) may actually be beneficial.
