Yesterday, regional utility Central Hudson Gas & Electric issued the following press release
that addresses their February 2022 electric supply rate of .21995 kw; 3 times their historic average and triple the rate of the Town’s Community Choice Aggregation program (.06565 kw). Residents who did not elect to remain in the CCA, and who did not subscribe to the Community Solar project, may see significant increases in their utility bills.
When the Town Board back in 2019 contemplated joining the Hudson Valley Community Power CCA - (a program where municipalities join together to make bulk purchases for clean energy supply), we focused on 2 potential benefits - 100% clean energy sources and fixed rate pricing. If you elected to remain in the program, your energy supply rate will continue to be .06565 through June, 2024.
While one month does not a trend make, the utility rate has been higher for each of the 8 months since we renewed our 3 year contract with Columbia Utilities.
