The New York Department of Public Service will hold a technical conference on January 22, 2020, "to discuss questions regarding compliance with the Commission’s Order Adopting Changes to the Retail Access Energy Market and Establishing Further Process, issued December 12, 2019[.]"
• A variable rate, commodity-only product that guarantees savings in comparison to relevant utility commodity service
• A fixed rate product that is limited in price to a 12-month trailing average utility supply rate plus a 5% premium
• A renewable electric commodity that is at least 50% greater than the minimum renewable obligation of the LSE, and which meets locational, deliverability and other requirements that will be delineated in the PSC's order
