GREENBURGH TOWN BOARD ENACTS LEGISLATION WHICH COULD REDUCE YOUR CON ED BILLS BY A FEW HUNDRED $/YR
Release Date: September 29, 2015

The Greenburgh Town Board unanimously approved a local law today enabling the town to procure natural gas and or electricity in aggregate on behalf of residential and small commercial energy customers in the town. We believe that this legislation will enable the town to help residents REDUCE their utility bills. Other local government in Westchester are joining forces and will participate in this exciting initiative which could reduce your Con Ed bills by hundreds of dollars.
 
Westchester  is the first county in New York State that was authorized to have a community choice aggregation pilot program. The New York State Public Service Commission approved the implementation of this initiative in February that allows local governments to put out for bid the total amount of energy being purchased by local residents or small businesses. Please see press release below. We are working with Sustainable Westchester, a non profit organization comprised of local governments in Westchester County which sought approval of the demonstration program.
 
Every resident of Greenburgh is automatically signed up for the program unless they participate in an ESCO already. However- anyone can opt out if they don’t wish to participate. Before enacting the legislation the Town Board held 3 public hearings: on June 24, July 8 and August 19th.
 
Potential benefits: price stability for a fixed contract term.  Lower prices. More favorable terms. Preference for cleaner power sources.
