[ARCHIVED] COMPARISON CON ED VS. ESCO (Con Ed rates are still lower)

Con Ed rates continue to be lower than the ESCO Greenburgh and 29 communities have signed up for. The analysis (comparisons of Con Ed and ESCO rates in June, 2023)  prepared by the ESCO can be read here. You can opt out if you like. Con Ed rates fluctuate up or down each month. The ESCO rates are fixed until October 2024. In recent months Con Ed rates hae been lower. You are enrolled in the ESCO unless you have previously opted out of the ESCO or are signed up for another ESCO.  I can assist with your opt out request if you are experiencing difficulties.

Please e mail me if you have questions. My e mail is pfeiner@gerenburghny.com or 914 438 1343.

 

Greenburgh Residential Electricity Supply Rate
 Comparison - June 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 - June 2023 Rate Comparison
 
The Westchester Power program offers two supply options for 100% Renewable and
 Standard. These rates are fixed until 10/31/2024.
 
June 2023 Residential Rates

Average Con Edison
 Standard Rate

WP 100% Renewable
 Fixed Rate

WP Standard Supply

8.81¢/kWh 

15.13¢/kWh 

13.36¢/kWh

Below is an approximate electricity cost comparison for a hypothetical Greenburgh
 
resident in June who consumed 500 kWh of electricity for the month
 
- For a Greenburgh resident on the ConEd supply, that customer would have been
 charged roughly 
$44.05 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 
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.
