Town of Geneva will launch renewable energy program

With the town poised to launch a renewable energy program in July, residents are encouraged to attend a Monday meeting on the subject.

Town Supervisor Mark Venuti said the information session will start at 6 p.m. at the town hall, 3750 County Road 6. There also will be a question-and-answer period.

Venuti said the administrator of the town’s Community Choice Aggregation program, Joule Associates — an energy efficiency company in Westchester County — has obtained a bid for renewable energy that will allow the town to launch the program. Residents can learn about fixed-rate, 100-percent renewable electricity default supply options, as well as more savings opportunities.

Opt-out information also will be provided if consumers don’t want to participate.

“Community Choice Aggregation is like a buying group using their numbers to get a better price,” Venuti explained. “Joule did a bid for us and got a price for renewable energy below the NYSEG price, and all town residents will get this unless they opt out.”
