[ARCHIVED] Con Ed vs. Sustainable Westchester ESCO comparison for March

On the 5th of each month I post summaries of Con Ed Vs. Sustainable Westchester ESCO rates.

On the 5th of each month I post summaries of Con Ed Vs. Sustainable Westchester ESCO rates. The ESCO uses green energy that is good for the planet. Con Ed does not. Everyone is automatically enrolled in the ESCO unless you opt out. Con Ed rates continue to be lower than the ESCO. Con Ed rates can go up or down between now and October, 2024. The ESCO rates stay flat. In recent months Con Ed rates have been lower. But, there is no guarantee that will continue during the rest of the contract period. Feel free to call me with questions. My cell is 914-438-1343.


Greenburgh Residential Electricity Supply Rate Comparison - March 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 - March 2023 Rate Comparison


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


March 2023 Residential Rates



Average Con Edison Standard Rate


WP 100% Renewable Fixed Rate


WP Standard Supply







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


  • For a Greenburgh resident on the ConEd supply, that customer would have been charged roughly $40.05 electricity supply
  • For customers enrolled in Westchester Power under the 100% Renewable fixed rate, the charge would have been roughly $75.65
  • 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, email, 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.
