With all this information you can make an informed decision and choose a supplier that is most suited for your household and budget.
Call Orange and Rockland Utilities to report power loss
Generally, utilities are responsible for delivering your electric and natural gas supply. To put it simply, the utility is in charge of operating power and gas lines.
If you experience a power outage, always contact the utility immediately. If you experience a natural gas emergency such as a gas leak, notify the utility immediately. The utility is the only entity with access to the pipes and power lines within its service area. While you may choose an alternative supplier for your electricity and natural gas supply, Orange and Rockland Utilities is still responsible for safely delivering your supply, fixing disruptions and resolving other issues.
