Door-to-Door Electricity Sales Scams

Please Beware that several companies are trying to trick residents into signing up for electricity with them. This is a scam. The Town of Horseheads and our partners are not going door-to-door selling electricity or calling people at home. These companies are unscrupulous and are misrepresenting their relationship with the Town.

The Town partnered with MEGA (Municipal Electric and Gas Alliance) on Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) and through a competitive selection process is offering electric supply from Constellation. If you receive a phone call, a door-to-door sale, or an additional letter in the mail it is not the CCA Program selected by the Town.

The Town and our partners worked together through the CCA Program to carefully select an option for you that is free from escalating prices, high termination fees, and aggressive sales tactics. Please call the Town or MEGA at 518-533-5399 if you have any questions.

If you feel that an energy services company has scammed you or to report a company that tried to scam you contact the New York State Public Service Commission via their Competitive Energy Hotline for complaints about Energy Service Companies at 888-697-7728 (8:30 am to 4 pm)

Never give your electricity account number to a door-to-door or telephone solicitor
