How It Works

Switching to CenStar Energy is Easy

In the late 1990s, competition and energy choice began when States and Public Service Commission’s worked together to restructure the utility industry. For example, generation plants produce electricity and sell it into the wholesale market via the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO). Utilities – having sold most of their generation plants – maintain the poles and wires, read the meters, provide outage and emergency service and default commodity service to customers who do not choose an alternate provider. Utility customers are able to choose a competitive supplier, also known as an energy service company (ESCO).

Switching Your Business

The first step in switching your business is for CenStar Energy to gather historical usage data from your utility. This data is necessary to analyze your energy consumption patterns and develop a proposal customized to the needs of your business.

One of our Energy Marketing Managers will discuss your preference for price structures and the degree of market risk you wish to take. Based on your pattern of energy usage and your tolerance for risk, we will propose a choice of pricing structures to meet your specific needs. We are extremely knowledgeable about the energy markets and about how businesses typically use energy.

After you have signed a CenStar Energy Sales Agreement stating the specific product, your price for gas and/or electric service and the duration of the agreement, the enrollment process is simple. Our operations team will work to provide a seamless transition from the utility or your current ESCO as your gas and/or electric accounts are transferred to our service.
