  • LIPA proposes to modify its Tariff for Electric Service, effective June 1, 2020, to require that each Energy Service Company ("ESCO") proposing to serve mass market customers in the Long Island Choice Program, in order to be eligible, must meet the latest requirements established by the New York Public Service Commission for ESCOs doing business in New York. Specifically, each ESCO must complete a Retail Access Eligibility Application Form with the New York Department of Public Service (the "Department" or "DPS"), receive a finding from the Department of eligibility to sell electricity as an ESCO, and maintain eligibility with the Department at all times during the ESCO's participation in Long Island Choice.
