Marbletown Supervisor Excited About Community Solar

Fifteen Marbletown leaders and influencers joined Town Supervisor Rich Parete, Council Member and Environmental Conservation Commission Chair Tom Konrad, and the Hudson Valley Community Power (HVCP) team at the Rondout Community Center on September 24th.  Led by Supervisor Parete, the discussions focused on the launch of our Community Solar program to Marbletown residents and small businesses. 

We all enjoyed the productive conversation about (1) the benefits of the program, (2) the opportunity to choose affordable, locally sourced renewable energy, and (3) the program’s guaranteed savings derived from NY State incentives for clean energy generation. Those present at the gathering learned that, by subscribing to a local solar farm, they’re guaranteed to save about 10% annually on electricity for up to 25 years.

Supervisor Parete was excited about the program: As if three wins are not enough, Hudson Valley Community Power is adding two more to the win-win-win scenario of renewable electricity for a lower price with two years of price certainty. If you sign up for Community Solar through Hudson Valley Community Power, you’ll save an additional 10% on your electric bill; plus, the Town gets money to help fund a sustainability project.”

In addition to the intrinsic advantages of the local solar program, program enrollments also generate funding for local sustainability projects. Click here to learn more about how we are giving back to communities that support local solar.
