Through its PowerYourWay program, the company encourages customers to learn about other electric and natural gas companies - known as energy services companies (ESCOs) - and to compare the pricing options and services that they offer. When a customer chooses to buy the energy their home or business uses through an ESCO, however, Con Edison still continues to deliver the electricity and gas, and responds if there is a service emergency.
