Con Ed vs Sustainable Westchester rates --a comparison
Greenburgh Residential Electricity Supply Rate Comparison - March 2022
Westchester Power vs. Con Edison
The Town of Greenburgh participates in a Community Energy Program known as Westchester Power. This energy supply program is managed by the local nonprofit
Sustainable Westchester on behalf of the 29 participating municipalities in Westchester County, procuring electricity in bulk to provide low-cost fixed rates to residents.
Residents benefit from the program through a fixed price structure that provides cost control assurance on their electric supply charges. The program also empowers the county and its residents to actively work towards a vision for a healthy and sustainable future by supporting renewable energy.
Average Con Edison Standard Rate
WP 100% Renewable Fixed Rate
WP Standard Supply
Contract to-date Residential Rates
Con Edison’s supply rate dropped in March due to a negative adjustment applied to the market charge of over 6 cents. This is the first time we have seen anything like this - generally the adjustments range from -2 to +2 cents. Energy prices in the broader market remain highly elevated and we do not expect ConEd to be able to apply similar
“negative adjustments” of the magnitude applied in March. WP 100% Renewable energy remains lower than the average Con Edison rate over the contract term, the equivalent of $1.80 in savings on your bill per month (for a resident who consumes 500 kwh/month). Savings over the term on WP Standard would be a little over $5 per month.
For a Greenburgh resident who consumed 500 kWh of electricity in February, that person would have been charged the following under each supply option:
