New York Energy Alternative Central Hudson Electric

When you manage your household budget, you probably consider various alternatives for where you spend your money. For example, you may check out multiple stores to buy your groceries, different wireless companies for your phone service, and more than one source for television programming. However, New York homeowners may not realize that they have a choice to purchase electricity and natural gas from a source other than the local utility company. Nordic Energy is an alternative to Central Hudson Electric for your household energy needs.

How Is Nordic Energy Different From Central Hudson Electric?

Central Hudson Electric is a traditional utility company. It provides the infrastructure to deliver energy to homes and businesses. When a malfunction or an accident interferes with that delivery, Central Hudson employees repair the disruption. Central Hudson also supplies the meters that measure how much power your home or business uses and bills you for these services. Even if you purchase electricity and natural gas from another source, Central Hudson maintains these same safe and reliable infrastructure responsibilities.

Nordic Energy is an alternative source for your natural gas and electricity solutions. Using the same equipment, you will still get your energy delivered over the Central Hudson infrastructure, and Central Hudson is still responsible for maintaining it. The power itself will come from Nordic Energy Services. As an alternative source, we offer some appealing advantages over local utility companies.
