Link to an exciting program they sponsor: community solar--you can save between 8-10% on power by getting benefits from solar even if you can’t solarize your roof


Greenburgh and twenty six other municipalities entered into a contract with Westchester Power in 2016 to provide area residents with electric power at fixed rates. The rates can’t go up or down during the length of the contract which expires in December, 2020.  Westchester Power administers a competitive bidding process, soliciting responses from all registered NY suppliers.   Every ratepayer in all 27 localities is part of the program - unless the customer opts out.  Westchester power is a partnership program of Sustainable Westchester.


Early on Con Ed rates were lower than the ESCO’s. In recent months they have been higher. At Tuesday’s Town Board meeting we heard from Westchester Power.  They explain the reasons and how Westchester Power’s fixed rates have compared against the variable utility rates.  At our meeting they indicated that the ESCO they contracted with found mistakes in some previous billings -which have been corrected.  The company will not only reimburse customers for mistakes but will provide them with an additional credit to offset their troubles. The link to the meeting is below.


For your convenience - I have also included a link that enables you to opt out if you desire. The phone number of Westchester Power is 914-241-4725.


There is another link below with frequently asked questions and answers.  And a link about an exciting program you can independently enroll in called Community Solar. Residents of multifamily apartments, condominiums, or just shady houses can subscribe to community solar project on a big building down the street or a retired landfill on the other side of the county and have the same impact to your bill and the environment as if it were on your own roof. Savings per customer is in the 8-10% range.  Westchester Power is trying to come up with creative initiatives that can make the planet greener.
