New Yorkers compare and save on deregulated electricity at ElectricityNY.com
Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 14, 2009 -- Temperatures won't be the only thing rising in New York City this
summer. If history is any guide, electricity bills will be going up, too. In 2008 the average New Yorker's

Now, there's a way to fight rising electricity bills in New York's deregulated electricity market, and it can be done

"Many New Yorkers may not even realize they HAVE a choice when it comes to electricity service," says
ElectricityNY.com Chief Marketing Officer Chip Smith. "But ConEd is not the only provider in town. Other
providers offer unique plans that can help stabilize electricity bills and promote a green planet."
