Greenburgh Residential Electricity Supply Rate Comparison - December 2021
Westchester Power vs. Con Edison
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.
Average Con Edison Standard Rate
WP 100% Renewable Fixed Rate
WP Standard Supply
Contract to-date Residential Rates
WP 100% Renewable energy has been .2¢/kWh higher than the average Con Edison rate over the contract term, the equivalent of an additional $1.00 in charges on your bill per month (for a resident who consumes 500 kwh/month)
For a Greenburgh resident who consumed 500 kWh of electricity in December, that person would have been charged the following under each supply option:
Con Edison Standard Rate
WP Standard Supply Fixed Rate
In comparing the Con Edison Standard Rate to the WP fixed rates for November:
CO2 mitigated, metric tons
Equivalent: Cars driven for a year
Equivalent: Tree seedlings grown for 10 years
Though we cannot know for what Con Edison rates will be in any future month, their Winter rates are historically higher, and energy prices in general are trending up.
Westchester Power fixed rates can provide a safe haven from uncertain energy costs while reducing household environmental footprint at the same time.
The power of choice is always in the hands of the residents to decide what energy supply option is best for them, and as such, you can take the following actions as it relates to Westchester Power:
(including those who have previously opted-out of the Westchester Power electricity supply in the past) still have the ability to opt-in and participate, as the current contract price is locked in until June 30, 2022.
Renewable or Standard Supply fixed rates, you can change your supply option at any time. Whether you want to move into the 100% Renewable supply to maximize your clean energy impact, or switch to the Standard Supply for a better financial option, the choice is yours.
