On the 5th of every month the Town of Greenburgh will post a comparison of Con Ed rates and the rates Greenburgh residents and residents of other communities served by Westchester Power are paying. 24 communities in Westchester have signed up for Sustainable Westchester's ESCO. Every resident is automatically signed up unless they opt out. Con Ed rates can go up or down during the life of the contract. But, the ESCO rates will remain flat until October 2024. During December Con Ed rates were lower than the ESCO but the trend of Con Ed rates going up continues. Through the first 4 days of January, Con Ed is averaging over 14 cents per kWh. If the trend continues Con Ed rates and the ESCO rates will soon be almost the same.

Greenburgh Residential Electricity Supply Rate Comparison - December 2022
Westchester Power Program Background
The Town of Greenburgh participates in a Community Energy Program known as Westchester Power. This electricity 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.
The new Westchester Power contract began in December and offers two supply options for 100% Renewable and Standard. These rates are fixed until 10/31/2022.
