Westchester Power vs. Con Edison
Westchester Power Program Background
The Town of Greenburgh participates in a Community Energy Program known as Westchester Power. This energy supply program is managed by the local nonprofit Sustainable Westchester on behalf of the 29 participating municipalities in Westchester County, procuring electricity in bulk to provide low-cost fixed rates to residents. Residents benefit from the program through a fixed price structure that provides cost control assurance on their electric supply charges. The program also empowers the county and its residents to actively work towards a vision for a healthy and sustainable future by supporting renewable energy.
