Most deregulated States have mandated that all Utility and Energy Service Companies (ESCO / Marketers) develop and implement EDI procedures and transactions to support customer retail access. NYS Public Service Commission has mandated that ESCOs use EDI technology whenever they have to enroll customers with the Utility or receive Meter Readings from the Utility in the Deregulatory Energy Industry. To facilitate this, EC Infosystems, the largest EDI service provider in the NY Deregulated Energy Market offers an EDI Outsourcing Service whereby the ESCOs can outsource their EDI processing to us.
Whenever an ESCO needs to enroll a customer with the Utility they can enter that enrollment into our website.
