[ARCHIVED] Greenburgh Residential Electricity Supply Rate Comparison - Feb 2023

Around the 5th of every month I post a comparison of the Con Ed rates and the rates charged to residents who have not opted out for the ESCO.

Around the 5th of every month I post a comparison of the Con Ed rates and the rates charged to residents who have not opted out for the ESCO. During the month of February Con Ed rates were LOWER than the ESCO rates. During the past few months the Con Ed rates have been lower. Everyone is enrolled in the ESCO unless they have asked to opt out or have signed up for another ESCO.

If you have not previously opted out you can --and you will then not be enrolled in the ESCO. Info on the opt out process is below. You can also e mail me at pfeiner@greenburghny.com and I will make sure that you have opted out if that is your desire.

Although Con Ed rates are currently lower than that of the ESCO - that may not necessarily continue. Con Ed rates fluctuate each month --some months they are higher than the ESCO. Other months they could be lower. The Sustainable Westchester ESCO is fixed till October, 2024. Those rates can't go up or down.

The ESCO uses green energy which is better for the planet but more costly.

Greenburgh Residential Electricity Supply Rate Comparison - February 2023

Westchester Power vs. Con Edison

 

 

 

Westchester Power Program Background

 

The Town of Greenburgh participates in a Community Energy Program known as Westchester Power. This electricity supply program is managed by the local nonprofit Sustainable Westchester on behalf of the 29 participating municipalities in Westchester County. The program empowers the county and its residents to actively work towards a vision for a healthy and sustainable future by supporting renewable energy. Residents benefit from the fixed price program model that provides cost control assurance on their electric supply charges.

 

Westchester Power Contract - February 2023 Rate Comparison

 

The Westchester Power program offers two supply options for 100% Renewable and Standard. These rates are fixed until 10/31/2024.

 

February 2023 Residential Rates

 

 

Average Con Edison Standard Rate

 

WP 100% Renewable Fixed Rate

 

WP Standard Supply

 

11.24¢/kWh

 

15.28¢/kWh

 

13.36¢/kWh

Below is an approximate electricity cost comparison for a hypothetical Greenburgh resident in February who consumed 500 kWh of electricity for the month

 

  • For a Greenburgh resident on the ConEd supply, that customer would have been charged roughly $56.20 electricity supply
  • For customers enrolled in Westchester Power under the 100% Renewable fixed rate, the charge would have been roughly $76.40
  • All Westchester Power Standard user’s charge would have been $66.80


 

Options for Greenburgh Residents

 

Residents who want to enroll, change their supply, or opt out can visit the Westchester Power web page and fill out the applicable online form on the Sustainable Westchester website at sustainablewestchester.org/wp/conedenergychoices/, email

westchesterpower@sustainablewestchester.org, or call Sustainable Westchester at (914) 242-4725 ext. 111 for live assistance.

 

Want to enroll?

Greenburgh residents who are not currently enrolled in the program

(including those who have previously opted out of the Westchester Power electricity supply in the past) still have the ability to opt in and participate, as the current contract price is locked in until October 31, 2024.

Want to change supply options?

For residents already participating in the program at either the 100%

Renewable or Standard Supply fixed rates, you can change your supply option at any time. Whether you want to move into the 100% Renewable supply to maximize your clean energy impact, or switch to the Standard Supply for a better financial option, the choice is yours.

Want to opt out of Westchester Power altogether?

Residents participating in the program can opt out at any point they wish with no hassle, penalty, or fees.
