The Secretary of the New York PSC denied an extension request filed by Family Energy to extend the deadline for ESCOs offering legacy mass market green gas products to either (1) modify the products such that they comply with the pricing limits applicable to mass market products, or (2) return mass market green gas customers to default service
ESCOs had been given 120 days from the PSC's July 15 green gas order to comply with the green gas directive
Family Energy sought an extension of the deadline, stating that it would timely be seeking a rehearing of the green gas order. Family Energy sought an extension of such deadline until 90 days after a PSC order on a forthcoming rehearing petition from Family.
In ruling on Family Energy's request, the Secretary stated, "Based on the information you provided, the requested extension is denied as both unnecessary and premature at this time."
"The extension request did not specify any particular deficiencies in the Commission’s order or satisfy the burden of demonstrating that an extension would advance the public interest. As of today, Family has not submitted a rehearing petition and the time to do so has not expired. Thus, there presently is no basis or need to consider whether or not the implementation of an extension beyond the compliance timeline provided by the Commission’s July 2022 Order is necessary," the Secretary stated
