Help us bring LOCAL ENERGY CHOICE to the Hudson Valley for CLEANER, CHEAPER, and more LOCAL energy, decided by the municipality (instead of the state)!

Hudson Valley Community Power is a partnership between six communities (Beacon, Cold Spring, Marbletown, Philipstown, the Town of Fishkill, and the City of Poughkeepsie), who have teamed with JouleCommunity (as Program Administrator) and Hudson Valley Energy (as Local Organizer), to explore the potential of participating in a Community Choice energy program in the Hudson Valley.

What is a Community Choice energy program?
Based on NYS regulation, a Community Choice energy program is an energy procurement program that enables cities, towns, and villages to buy energy on behalf of their residents and businesses, aggregating the buying power of individual customers within a defined jurisdiction. The aim of this strategy is a more democratized energy system.

With a Community Choice energy program, the default supplier is chosen by the local government as a result of a formal procurement process where the best possible rate is achieved: without a Community Choice program in place, the electric utility is the default supplier. This results in greater buying power that can leverage cash savings to the customers in those communities.

Under a Community Choice energy program, the municipality works with the Program Administrator to identify Program priorities and solicit proposals from qualified energy supply companies on behalf of their residents and small businesses.

YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS!
In order for your community to decide to go forward with this program, your municipal authority needs to know that YOU, a resident of the Hudson Valley, support the launch of a Community Choice energy program – Hudson Valley Community  Power - and want to see it move forward.
