[ARCHIVED] May comparison Con Ed vs Sustainable Westchester ESCO rates

On or around the 5th of each month I share comparisons Con Ed vs. Sustainable Westchester's (Westchester Power)  ESCO rates. Con Ed rates continue to be lower than the ESCO rates  7.85 cents per Kwh compared to 15.13 cents per Kwh for the ESCO Greenburgh and 29 municipalities had signed up for. The ESCO rates can't go up and down till October 2024. Con Ed rates can fluctuate each month. In recent months they have been lower than the ESCO rates. There have been months in the past when Con Ed rates were higher.  


It's easy to opt out if you don't want to continue to participate in the ESCO.  Contact Sustainable Westchester if you wish to opt out. Or e mail me at pfeiner@greenburghny.com. if you are having difficulty.  The ESCO purchases green power.

The summary was prepared by Sustainable Westchester.

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

 

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

 

May 2023 Residential Rates

 

 

Average Con Edison Standard Rate

 

WP 100% Renewable Fixed Rate

 

WP Standard Supply

 

7.85¢/kWh

 

15.13¢/kWh

 

13.36¢/kWh

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

 

  • For a Greenburgh resident on the ConEd supply, that customer would have been charged roughly $39.25 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

  • 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.
