Harris Beach Energy Partner Michelle Piasecki will discuss “The Rationale Behind the Recent New York State Energy Legislation” at Energy Marketing Conferences’ EMC20 conference in Midtown Manhattan.

Michelle will be joined by Richard Berkley, Consumer Advocate & Director, Office of Consumer Services at New York State Department of Public Service in the discussion. A description of their session is below:

The New York State Public Service Commission recently implemented regulations requiring energy brokers and consultants (which terms are construed broadly) to register with the Department of Public Services and disclose certain fees to customers, including commissions, bonuses, and non-financial compensation, such as prizes, tickets, etc. Failure to adhere to the registration and other rules can lead to fines, loss of commissions, invalidation of customer contracts, and forfeiture of the ability to operate in New York.
