Stop Iberdrola SA's takeover of Energy East and its Community Energy Inc is already a monopolistic marketer in NYS

Dear PSC Chairman Brown and Ms. Jodi Fansler:

Every e-mail I've sent to you, I've separately also sent to the Secretary of the Commission.

As you will see below, through deceptive marketing practices, Iberdrola SA's Community Energy has already monopolized the renewable energies which are the public is being offered in NY State. Virtually all of the product offerings are coming from Iberdrola (Community Energy Inc), with a variety of names to make the NY State public falsely believe there is product competition when, in reality, there is no substantive competition.

For this reason, please clamp down on the Iberdrola SA nightmare and reject in its entirety Iberdrola's takeover bid for Energy East.

Each of the utility companies in NY State (NIMO-National Grid; Energy East / RG&E / NYSEG Solutions; LIPA; ConEdison; Orange & Rockland) offer a choice of Community Energy Inc (Iberdrola Product) or a competing ESCO-named product [which in reality is also an Iberdrola CEI marketed product whose name has simply been changed].

In fact, Iberdrola SA (Community Energy Inc) has taken its marketing secrecy of its product line / product deceptions to such an extreme that Iberdrola SA has labeled with the State of NY their Community Energy Inc MARKETING CONTRACT (DPS-123, IBER-0197) with Energy East as being "HIGHLY TRADE SECRET".

People want to know who the marketer is that the energy services companies (ESCOs) wind power offerings actually come from. The ESCOs listed on NYPIRG’s website as Renewable Electricity Suppliers[marketers]are not the source marketer of any of the actual renewable energy products that the ESCO is offering to NY State’s residential consumer:

ConEd Solutions:

NYPIRG, on its website (see link), tries to deceive the residential consumers and the government regulators/investigators that regulated “utility companies” (e.g., RG&E; NYSEG; O&R; ConEd) are selling “ConEd Solutions” brand renewable energy electricity options.

But “utility companies” are not allowed to “sell” ESCO company products to the consumer, so why is NYPIRG involved in such deception.

Only an ESCO itself can sell the ESCO’s own products.

The ConEd Solutions Green Power brand blend of 35% wind / 65% small hydro which is offered by ConEd Solutions to falsely make it appear that Iberdrola / CEI is not monopolizing the allegedly competitive brands of wind /renewable energies offered by ConEd Solutions when, in truth the ConEd Solutions Green Power brand blend of 35% wind / 65% small hydro is exactly the same stuff marketed to ConEd Solutions by the same power marketer Iberdrola SA’s wholly-owned CEI affiliate.

The Iberdrola-owned Community Energy Inc (CEI) website reveals that Iberdrola-owned CEI is the electrical power marketer of that “35% wind [CEI’s NewWind Energy trademark] / 65% small hydro” blend.

The ConEd Solutions Wind Power brand of 100% wind electricity is offered by ConEd Solutions to falsely make it appear that Iberdrola / CEI is not monopolizing the allegedly competitive brands of wind energies offered by ConEd Solutions when, in truth the ConEd Solutions Wind Power brand is exactly the same stuff marketed to ConEd Solutions by the same power marketer Iberdrola SA’s wholly-owned CEI affiliate. The Iberdrola-owned Community Energy Inc (CEI) website reveals that Iberdrola-owned CEI is the electrical power marketer of that “100% wind” [CEI’s NewWind Energy trademark].

In the earlier years, starting in 2003 of For example, under the name CEI “Green-E certified blend” of “…New York-based wind (25%) and [small] hydropower (75%)”, ConEd Solutions offered that Community Energy Inc (CEI) marketed renewables-blend energy from May 2003 to May 2006 and clearly identified it as a CEI product.

Energetix:

[Energetix offers Energetix Option 1; and Energetix Option 2; and Energetix Option 3 (the latter only in the Long Island region of NY State) -- hiding from the public and from government regulators/investigators that these wind energy / renewable energy products come to Energetix from a marketer monopololizer Community Energy Inc (CEI) which is a wholly-owned affiliate of Iberdrola SA].

Energetix Option 1 is a 50% wind / 50% small damless hydro mix, blended with conventionally generated electricity, forming a 50% renewables / 50% conventional electricity blend.

This is the same exact Iberdrola-owned Community Energy Inc (CEI) supplied renewables portion of 50% wind / 50% small hydro that Iberdrola-owned Community Energy Inc (CEI) markets to the State of Connecticut under the Community Energy Inc. name and its NewWind Energy registered trademark.

Energetix Option 2 is a 50% wind / 50% small damless hydro mix of electricity.
This is the same exact Iberdrola-owned Community Energy Inc (CEI) supplied 50% wind / 50% small hydro that CEI markets to the State of Connecticut under the Community Energy Inc. name and its NewWind Energy registered trademark.

Energetix Option 3 (offered only to customers in the Long Island region serviced by utility company LIPA).

This is also an Iberdrola-owned Community Energy Inc (CEI) supplied and marketed wind / small hydro product, only in a slightly different percentage blend of 60% wind / 40% small hydro which has had all “labels” removed that would otherwise show it is an Iberdrola-owned CEI power marketer product.

NYSEG Solutions:

Using the NYSEG Solutions name, without mentioning that Iberdrola-owned Community Energy is the marketer/provider of its wind electricity products, NYSEG Solutions is only offering various blends of Community Energy Inc (CEI) products.

Central Hudson Enterprises Corporation (CHEC),: This subsidiary of CH Energy Group, Inc. owns Lyonsdale Biomass in Lyonsdale, NY. The Lyonsdale Biomass facility burns wood to produce electricity. Wood burning, on the scale needed to produce electricity, pollutes the air, but the company and State of NY ignore the pollution because there is a lot of freebies (tax credits, Renewal Energy Certificates (REC) monies, and Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) monies) to be corporately gained.

Iberdrola-owned Community Energy Inc (CEI) markets the CHEC Lyonsdale Biomass electricity product by marketing blends of it mixed with Iberdrola-produced / Iberdrola (CEI)-marketed wind power electricity, offered under various names to deceive the NY State citizenry from recognizing the fact that Iberdrola (CEI) has a stranglehold in NY State of virtually all power marketing of all renewable energies, giving the public a false belief that there are competitive choices when in fact Iberdrola’s Community Energy Inc has a product power marketing stranglehold on the entire State of New York.

A cozy marketing arrangement exists between Iberdrola (Community Energy Inc) and Central Hudson being that Central Hudson is one of the co-owners which support Iberdrola’s (Community Energy Inc’s) ownership of the Jersey-Atlantic Wind Project, NJ.

EnviroGen:

[EnviroGen offers its renewable energy product under the name EnviroGen; -- hiding from the public and from government regulators/investigators that these wind energy / renewable energy products come to EnviroGen directly (or indirectly) from an unrevealed power marketer, most likely from Community Energy Inc (CEI) which is a wholly-owned affiliate of Iberdrola SA].

In fact, EnviroGen is one of the companies listed as buying wind power electricity generated at the Iberdrola SA (Community Energy Inc) owned Bear Creek Wind Farm, PA.

Sterling Planet:

[Sterling Planet offers its renewable energy product under the name Sterling Planet; -- hiding from the public and from government regulators/investigators that these wind energy / renewable energy products come to Sterling Planet directly (or indirectly) from Community Energy Inc (CEI) which is a wholly-owned affiliate of Iberdrola SA].

Sterling Planet buys the same 50% wind / 50% small hydro electricity blend from the same power marketer of the same 50% wind / 50% small hydro electricity blend that Energetix is buying from, (that being from Iberdola SA-owned power marketer Community Energy Inc), and, in the same manner as Energetix is doing, has had all “labels” removed that would otherwise show it is an Iberdrola-owned CEI power marketer product.

Sterling Planet also buys a 50% wind / 50% small hydro / 30% landfill gas (biomass) blend, but it won’t disclose who the power marketer is that it buys from, and then markets that blend as Sterling Green.

However, it is known that Iberdrola-owned CEI has, under the Community Energy Inc product name, marketed landfill gas dating back to March 2005 when CEI marketed from its NY City office a 50% wind / 50% landfill gas blend.

Thus, Iberdrola SA-owned CEI is the probable unnamed power marketer who is providing the landfill gas that Sterling Planet is now (in 2008) offering under its Sterling Green option.

US Energy Partners:

US Energy Partners offers renewable energy product under the name US Energy Partners; and also under the name EnvironGen which is another ESCO which is an “affiliate program: green energy” (see link) -- hiding from the public and from government regulators/investigators that these wind energy / renewable energy products come to US Energy Partners directly (or indirectly) from an unrevealed power marketer, most likely from Community Energy Inc (CEI) which is a wholly-owned affiliate of Iberdrola SA].

IDT Energy:

[IDT Energy offers its renewable energy product under the name IDT Energy ; -- hiding from the public and from government regulators/investigators that these wind energy / renewable energy products come to IDT Energy directly (or indirectly) from an unrevealed power marketer, most likely from Community Energy Inc (CEI) which is a wholly-owned affiliate of Iberdrola SA].

Accent Energy (aka Accent Energy Group LLC):

Accent Energy offers its renewable energy product under the name Accent Energy ; -- hiding from the public and from government regulators/investigators that these wind energy / renewable energy products come to Accent Energy directly (or indirectly) from an unrevealed power marketer, most likely from Community Energy Inc (CEI) which is a wholly-owned affiliate of Iberdrola SA or from another Iberdrola SA affiliate].
