GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- At the last week's Greenburgh Town Board meeting, the Town Board unanimously approved a resolution authorizing the Town Supervisor to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding between the town and Sustainable Westchester.

According to its website, Sustainable Westchester is "a consortium of Westchester County local governments that facilitates effective sustainability initiatives, engages community stakeholders, and shares tools, resources, and incentives to create more healthy, vibrant and attractive communities."

Working together, the town and the consortium will participate in a Community Choice Aggregation program to procure energy supply from one or more energy service companies for the residents of the Town of Greenburgh.

New Jersey passed a similar law, with the first programs launched in 2013. To date, four communities --Tom’s River, Montgomery County, Monroe, and Plumsted Townships -- have aggregated with several more in the planning pipeline. An average electricity rate savings of 8 to 14 percent was reported in these four areas.

As of December 2015, 41 municipalities are currently included in Sustainable Westchester, representing approximately 855,000 residents — 90 percent of the county’s population.
