GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The Greenburgh Town Board approved a resolution authorizing the Town Supervisor to procure energy supply from one or more Energy Services for the Greenburgh residents.

New Jersey passed a similar law and launched the first programs in 2013. To date, four communities, Tom’s River, Montgomery County, Monroe, and Plumsted Townships, have aggregated with several more in the planning pipeline. Electricity savings of these early programs have ranged from 8 to 14 percent.

In the state of New York, Westchester County is leading the way. Their application to form the first pilot community aggregation program has been granted, and the rest of the state is watching and waiting.

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

Sustainable Westchester is the first and only Community Choice program in New York State, expected to bid for electricity on behalf of over 45 municipalities in Westchester County.
