We are thrilled our residents are able to reap both financial and environmental benefits during these difficult times. Residents experiencing financial difficulties should consider joining Hudson Valley Community Power. Doing so will allow them to save money and help our planet by taking actionable steps towards addressing our growing climate crisis.

Neil Bettez, Town of New Paltz Supervisor

With the high cost of day-to-day living, it’s always challenging to plan family budgets. Given our participation in the CCA, it’s a load off my mind not only that my electricity prices haven’t soared, and knowing that they will be stable for the next few years, provides tremendous peace of mind. In addition to the cost savings, I’m happy to know that my energy needs are being met with local, renewable sources without any added effort or inconvenience

Nicholas Dedring, program participant, Beacon

Both the CCA Program and Community Solar are no-brainers for everyone; they save people money and increase clean energy use in New York State, particularly here in the Hudson Valley.  These programs are even better for people with less money since the savings will be even more meaningful.

Randy Casale, Former Mayor of Beacon

Lowering electric rates at the same time sourcing 100% of our energy from renewable sources, is a win for everyone who participates and a win for the environment. New collaborations with our neighboring communities is a win for the entire region.

Rob Rolison, Former Mayor of Poughkeepsie

We are excited to move forward as a community. This provides residents a win/win/win trifecta: they get a price that is roughly half a penny per kWh less than what they paid Central Hudson, on average over the last year, that rate is fixed, so they are protected against volatile market prices for the next two years, and supply is 100% renewable, greened by Renewable Certificates that come from power plants they can directly identify. Over and above that, they can save 10% more with community solar.

Richard Parete, Supervisor of Marbletown
