The Utility Energy Registry (UER) is a database platform that provides streamlined public access to aggregated community-scale utility-reported energy data. The UER is intended to promote and facilitate community-based energy planning and energy use awareness and engagement.
This dataset includes electricity and natural gas usage data reported at the city, town, and village level within New York State. Other UER datasets include energy use data reported at the county and ZIP code level.
Data in the UER can be used for several important purposes such as planning Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) programs, developing community greenhouse gas emissions inventories, and relating how certain energy projects and policies may affect a particular community. It is important to note that the data are subject to privacy screening and fields that fail the privacy screen are withheld.
