Westchester Power

Westchester Power demonstrated how communities can take charge of their energy procurement to achieve their clean energy goals. Recognizing the potential of this approach, dozens of communities across NY State have followed this lead and established similar programs. Westchester Power is a community choice aggregation program that offer bulk fixed-rate renewable electricity to its member municipalities. Today 29 of 45 Westchester municipalities have selected the Westchester Power program as the default supplier for their residents and small businesses. The impact is significant, as participation has mitigated 310,860 metric tons of CO2 in 2023. All of this has been achieved while leveraging the collective buying power of over 140,000+ customers to lock in fixed rates, thereby offering an opportunity to control costs for residents.

Community Solar

After a successful rooftop Solar program executed in 22 municipalities and resulting in 100’s of installations, Sustainable Westchester found that the void in the market centered around ill-suited property, lack of consistent access and often substantial upfront costs. Sustainable Westchester’s Community Solar offers guaranteed savings to residents who enroll while helping to green the local electricity grid. With no cost to join or cancel and no solar installation on the subscriber’s property, Community Solar increases equitable access to the benefits of renewable energy. Community Solar works in combination with the Westchester Power program, and subscribers are doubling their positive environmental impact. With the assurance of vetted and proven solar developers and vendors, municipalities can partner with Sustainable Westchester to help their residents access community solar opportunities through local outreach campaigns. Community Solar opportunities for municipal electricity accounts and full integration with the Westchester Power program will be available soon as well.
