Broadband For All - New York State is investing $500M into a new Broadband Program that provides funding for high-speed internet access to unserved areas across the state. The New NY Broadband Program has made significant progress toward achieving its nation-leading goal of broadband for all. By the end of 2018, 97% of New Yorkers will have the broadband access required to succeed in a 21st century economy. 

Energy Utilities

New Yorkers have the opportunity to shop for their electricity provider. The New York Public Service Commission (PSC) started by ‘unbundling’ your energy bill, separating charges for delivering energy to your home or business from charges for the energy itself.

It’s in the energy, or commodity, charges that you can choose an alternate provider. Alternate electric providers, known as Energy Service Companies, or ESCOs, in New York, compete for you business in most utility areas, including National Grid & New York State Electric & Gas (NYSEG).

In New York, each utility continues to offer what is called ‘default service,’ or service to customers who have never shopped for an energy provider. This default service serves as a benchmark for pricing in the market.

Chautauqua County has multiple municipally owned power providers which supply a less expensive alternative compared to those connected to the grid. Municipal power providers are located in Brocton, Westfield, and the largest is in Jamestown.The City of Jamestown Board of Public Utilities' Electric Generating Station is one of the oldest and most successful municipal power plants in the country. In addition, the Jamestown BPU is the largest of 47 municipally-owned and operated utilities in New York State.
