MASSENA—Does deregulation affect your energy bill? How to choose a new energy supplier, known as ESCOs, from the long list of competing companies? Can forming a group for bulk purchases of electricity and gas save money?  How can you take advantage of the new state and federal tax credits? What’s the newest in lighting, heating and cooling technologies?

These and other questions will be answered at the Energy Solutions Seminar to be held Thursday, November 9, at the New York Power Authority’s (NYPA) Hawkins Point Visitors’ Center here.
