Homeowners used to enjoy the bliss of fewer decisions when it came to their energy needs. Local and regional utilities controlled and supplied all the IL, MD, PA, NY, OH and NJ residential gas & electric with a monopoly on prices. They had some options, such as their oil furnace or other natural energy sources if they created their own heat at home, but nobody worried about NY gas or PA electric costs because prices were low enough. It wasn’t until the 1960s that anybody really worried about a lack of competition.
Beginning with the oil price shocks in the 1970s, a number of events drove up the cost of residential gas & electric, leading people to agitate against state monopolies, ultimately resulting in states deregulating and opening up utilities to competition. Residential energy providers like Plymouth Rock Energy sprang up to fill the gap and give homeowners choices. The state utility companies still manage delivering energy sources like NJ gas to residential homes, but utility companies like us compete for customers based on energy prices and better quality of service.
At Plymouth Rock Energy, we have focused our innovation on lowering prices and identifying superior service strategies and policies as main priorities. Superior service has been one of our defining characteristics for over 60 years, since Plymouth Rock Energy got its start delivering coal and fuel oil to New York City. We continue to be based out of Long Island and service New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland and Illinois with plans for expansion into other territories.
Our innovation led us to expand into natural gas in 2004 and electricity in 2010, with a number of other energy services added along the way to help residential customers save more on their energy needs, understand the issues that matter to them, and get the level of service they deserve.
One of the best ways that we help you do this is by offering a range of service plans and options so you can customize how we meet your energy needs to meet your budget.

Fixed rates – With natural gas prices at or near the lowest levels of the past decade, selecting a fixed rate lets you lock in that lower price for long-term savings. Similarly, the trends in electricity rates suggest prices will continue to rise in coming years. A fixed-rate plan protects you from increased future costs.
