New York City Marches to De-Regulation

There are about 20 different ESCOs in New York City for customers to choose from, in addition to having Con Edison supply power, as in the past.  During the first phase of the multi-phased march towards complete de-regulation which began in June of 1998, almost 76,000 customers from New York City and Westchester County chose an ESCO in place of Con Ed as suppliers of their electricity. However there was a 62,000 limit on the number of customers who were allowed to make the switch, and that was the number that were picked at random and actually were signed up for the ESCO of their choice during phase one.
