What is Hudson Valley Community Power?

As of July 1, 2019, the default energy supply to homes and small businesses in the participating communities is 100% renewable.

Hudson Valley Community Power is a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) program comprised of six communities in New York’s Hudson Valley and formed in partnership with Joule Community Power.

The program enables participating communities to pool local electricity demand in order to leverage the collective buying power of their residents and small businesses in effort to secure more favorable energy supply rates and designate renewable generation sources.

The participating communities include Beacon, Cold Spring, Fishkill, Marbletown, Philipstown, and Poughkeepsie.

Learn how you can save even more on your electricity - up to 10% annually - regardless of whether you participate in the CCA!
