New York State has created a number of programs designed to achieve the clean energy goals contained in the RPS, EEPS, SBC and RGGI policies. These programs are supported by collections from our electric and natural gas customers. The company has an interest in evaluating these programs to make sure benefits are being delivered to our customers in the most cost-effective manner possible. Ultimately the company supports these programs because they help achieve benefits desired by our customers: cleaner air and a healthier environment. Additionally, some programs are open to participation by our customers and can help them control their energy costs.
