Choosing an Alternative ESCO Supplier

Central Hudson is your default utility for electricity and/or natural gas delivery and supply. Delivery is all services related to getting energy to your home, and supply covers the cost of energy you consume and customer serice. By choosing an alternative Energy Supply Company (ESCO), you may be able to save on your supply charges.

If you would like to choose an ESCO, you will need to set up your Central Hudson account first. The ESCO will need your Central Hudson account information in order to switch over your energy supply. Most suppliers do not charge a fee to set up service, but there are other common contract conditions to be aware of. You can choose between variable and fixed rates, though we recommend fixed.
