Budget Billing

Budget payments are available for customers who would like predictable monthly bills. Based on historical usage, BluCo Energy estimates a customers' monthly use so they can pay for the average of their annual consumption each month - leading to bills that are exactly the same for 12 months.

By the end of the 12 month period, customers will pay what they owe, based on the difference between estimated and actual usage. Customers may also get some money back if their annual usage was lower than expected.

Fixed Rates

We recommend fixed rates with Energy Service Companies (ESCOs). This is because paying a flat rate for natural gas per therm or electricity per kilowatt-hour can shield you from market price fluctuations over time.

Based on their respective price trends, we recommend fixed price plans of 12 months or fewer for natural gas customers, and 18 months or more for electricity customers.

Because variable rates are not regulated by your state government, they can end up being more expensive than your local utility. For this reason, we do not recommend variable rates from ESCOs like BluCo Energy.

Community Involvement

BluCo Energy's president Michael Proscia is active in giving back to the community, resulting in earning the Humanitarian Award from the Neighborhood Improvement Association.

The company is heavily involved in community service, with relationships with organizations like 68th Precinct Youth Council and The Jewish Community Center in Staten Island.

Green Commitment

Though the company does not currently offer green energy options, it contributes to the environment by recycling, and supporting green programs like the Green Zone Bill to expand public green space in Staten Island.

Customer Reviews

Customers report that they really enjoy being able to save on fixed rate plans with BluCo Energy. The company also received an A rating from the Better Business Bureau as of March 2015 for its customer service practices.

However, some customers do not appreciate the company's telemarketing practices, and feel that they may not be fully transparent.
