[ARCHIVED] Town Bd to discuss Westchester Power & Con Ed rates at 6 PM tonight

the Town Board will hold a public discussion with Westchester Power tonight at 6 PM - Con Ed & Westchester Power rates (a comparison). The meeting is open to the public and will be conducted by Zoom. More details in full text.

ON May 4th I posted information on the town website about our agreement with Westchester Power. Greenburgh and 26 communities in Westchester have signed agreements with Westchester Power to provide competitive fixed rates for renewable and standard electricity thru bulk purchasing. Rates can’t go up or down for the length of the contract. As noted in the link below initially our rates were lower than Con Ed’s. Recently, they have been higher. We don’t know what the future will bring.

When we entered into the agreement with 26 other communities Con Ed rates were going up and we all felt that ratepayers would appreciate having fixed rates for a fixed period of time. Everyone in the town is signed up unless they opt out. 


Tonight, at 6 PM to 7 PM  the Town Board will meet with Dan Welsh of Westchester Power who will explain why rates at some points are lower than Con Ed’s and why recently rates have been higher.  And what they anticipate will happen in the future. Our meeting will be streamed live on the town website and also archived. If you would like to participate in the meeting you should e mail townboard@greenburghny.com and we will provide you with a link to the Zoom discussion.  Since this portion of the meeting will only be about an hour - it would be appreciated if you would also e mail questions to townboard@greenburghny.com. Your questions will be answered at the beginning of the meeting. We will provide residents with an opportunity to ask questions after written questions are asked and responded to.
