About Hudson Valley Community Power 
Hudson Valley Community Power is a community choice aggregation program— comprising communities in NY’s Hudson Valley—that enables participants to save money on electricity by pooling electricity demand in order to leverage the collective buying power of residents and small businesses in effort to secure more favorable terms on their electricity supply and community solar contracts, protect consumers, and support renewable generation sources. The program has two components: community choice electricity supply and community solar.  The participating communities include the Cities of Beacon and Poughkeepsie; Towns of Clinton, Gardiner, Marbletown, New Paltz, Philipstown, Red Hook, Rhinebeck, and Saugerties; and Villages of Cold Spring, Nelsonville, New Paltz, and Saugerties..


Electricity Supply. Since July 2019, the default electricity supply in the originally participating communities is 100% renewable. The Town of Saugerties launched an electricity supply offering September 2021.  The Towns of Rhinebeck and Gardiner, and the Villages of Nelsonville and Saugerties are expected to launch an electricity supply offering in Fall 2022.


Community Solar. Prior to September 2021, community solar was available to all participating communities on an opt-in basis.  Soon, the Town of Marbletown will make it even easier to benefit from solar. Marbletown will be the first community in the Hudson Valley to offer community choice solar, automatically delivering the benefits of solar—including guaranteed electricity bill savings—to eligible residents and small businesses without individual contracts, credit checks, or a second bill.  Eligible participants can benefit from both the electricity supply and community solar offerings. 


Hudson Valley Community Power was formed in partnership with Joule Community Power
