New York state panel freezes ConEd electric, gas rates

  • The New York state Public Service Commission votes to freeze Consolidated Edison's (ED) electricity rates for two years and natural gas rates for the next three years.
  • The freeze covers the charges consumers pay for the delivery of electricity and gas - it does not cover the actual price of the commodities, which aren't regulated by the state - so the supply portions of consumers' bills will vary according to the market prices for natural gas and electricity generation.
  • ED did not get the rate increases it sought, but it wasn't strapped with rate cuts consumer advocates wanted; ED says the new plan will allow it to move ahead with $1B in infrastructure upgrades.
