 frequently asked questions about Westchester Power

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 prices were HIGHER than the ESCO’s. In recent months they have been LOWER. 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 are being corrected. Constellation is providing an additional "for your convenience"  over and above the refund" correction.  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 914-242-4725

There is another link below with frequently asked questions and answers.  And a link about an exciting program that has great potential called Community Solar. Residents of multifamily apartments, condominiums, or just shady houses will be able to  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 could be  in the 8-10% range for those who participate. Subscription  ebbs and flows as they get capacity from developer.  There are currently 22 available in Con Ed territory. Director of Solar Programs, Nina Orville, is lining up more. Westchester Power is working hard to make our community greener.
