The New York Public Service Commission (PSC) requires all electric utilities, energy service companies, jurisdictional municipal electric utilities and jurisdictional cooperative electric utilities to disclose details regarding the fuel mix and emissions of the supplier’s electric generation to customers. This information must be provided to retail customers in a standard format every 6 months.
The PSC created New York’s Environmental Disclosure Program via an order issued in December 1998. This program has been modified several times since it was established. A November 2008 PSC order reduced the frequency of the calculation of fuel mix and emissions data to once annually (the calendar year), but maintained the provision requiring customer disclosure of that data every six months.
